Self-proclaimed godman Asaram’s son, Narayan Sai, was held guilty by a Surat court on Friday in a rape case lodged against him.
The Sessions Court in Surat, which convicted Narayan Sai, will pronounce the sentence on April 30.
In 2013, two Surat-based sisters approached police alleging they were raped by Asaram Bapu and his son Narayan Sai. One of them had accused Narayan Sai of repeatedly raping her between 2002 and 2005 when she was living at his ashram.
While Sai is lodged in Lajpor jail on charges of the rape of a lady in Surat, Asaram is lodged at a Jodhpur jail and is serving a life term. Asaram is also facing trial in another sexual assault case in Gujarat.
Sai was arrested from Pipli, Kurukshetra in Haryana in December 2013 after two Surat sisters filed rape complaints against him and Asaram in October the same year.
Asaram was arrested in 2013 from Indore after a teenaged girl from Shahajahanpur in Uttar Pradesh filed a complaint and accused him of rape at his ashram in Manai village near Jodhpur in August 2013.
