AHMEDABAD: It seems that the followers of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu are still following him blindly and religiously.
The witnesses which were to be produced before court against Asaram, in the case of sexual assault, were reportedly attacked by some people ahead of the meet. The attack took place in Ahmedabad and out of the group, two attackers have been arrested.
This is not the first time that such attempts have been made as people who were prime witness to the case have been attacked earlier also. Prior to this attack, seven other witnesses were attacked and some of them were even killed.
Asaram Bapu, during one of the public appearances, was questioned about the attack on a witness in the sexual assault case, to which he replied, “Duniya mein sabhi hamle main hi karwata hoon (I am responsible for all the attacks that are happening)”.

Last week, the Supreme Court had asked the trial courts to provide protection to the witnesses facing threat.
