Asaram sentenced to life imprisonment; his two others accomplices get 20 years each
On Wednesday, a trial court in Jodhpur sentenced Asaram to life imprisonment till death for raping a 16-year-old minor girl in August 2013.

The verdict in the case was delivered by Special Judge Madhusudhan Sharma in a makeshift court inside the Jodhpur Central Jail today.

Two other of Asaram's accomplices have been awarded 20 years of jail term each.

This order virtually means that Asaram would no longer would see light of the day and will spend the rest of his life in prison.

The self-styled godman had been arrested for the crime on August 31, 2013 and since then has been lodged at the Jodhpur Central Jail.

Asaram broke down in the special court after the judgment was delivered. He has denied the charges and has the legal option of appealing against his conviction in a higher court.
