Finally police arrests Narayan Sai, the absconding son of self-styled godman Asaram
Self-styled godman Asaram's absconding son Narayan Sai, who was charged in a rape case in Surat, has been finally arrested on Delhi-Haryana border in a joint operation by the Delhi and Gujarat police, according to various media reports. Two sisters had filed a case against him in Surat, saying Sai had sexually assaulted them.
Narayan Sai has been arrested along with four other persons who have been helping him in absconding. He was caught along with his aides around midnight, when he was trying to enter from Haryana disguised as a Sikh man. After the arrest the Delhi Crime Branch was questioning him and is expected to be produced in court this afternoon.
According to the police officials the 41-year-old Sai stayed in Rajasthan, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh as he hid from the police. And he also kept changing his appearance frequently. After a tip-off on Monday the Delhi and Gujarat police launched a joint operation to chase him. The police have got info that he was traveling from Ludhiana in Punjab to Delhi in an SUV.
In this connection, it may be mentioned that Emperor Jahangir had ordered during his regime that anybody absconding from law, would be treated as guilty. Similarly, the American law also treats anybody who is absconding or running away from law as guilty.
It is suggested that Indian laws should also be amended in such a way that anybody running away from law or absconding should be treated as guilty of the crime for which he is absconding.
