A prosecution witness Rahul K Sachar, an Asaram follower in his deposition had deposed to the court during the trial that ended yesterday in a life-sentence for the self-styled godman.
Some of what he said was reported by NDTV: These are some highlights:
Asaram believed that sexual exploitation of girls is not a sin for a ‘Brahmgyani’ or a highly enlightened person.
Asaram also used to take medicines for increasing his sexual power and used to consume opium.
Mr. Sachar had further told the court that Asaram also used to take medicines for increasing his sexual power and used to consume opium.
Codeword for opium was ‘Panched Buti’.
He used to roam around the ashram with the three girls for selecting the targeted girls, said Mr. Sachar.
For this purpose, he used to give signals to three girls, who used to stay with him, by using a torch. On getting the ‘signal’, the girls used to take the targeted girls to his room in the kutia.
