Delhi court stays publication of the book on Asaram Bapu’s conviction.

A local court at Patiala House on Friday stayed the publication of a book titled “Gunning for the Godman: The story behind Asaram Bapu’s conviction”. The book- a police officer’s first-hand account of his arrest and conviction was slated for release on Saturday (September 5).
The order was passed in a civil suit filed by Sanchita Gupta, who was convicted by a court in Jodhpur under the POCSO Act in 2018 as an aid of Asaram Bapu in a case related to the rape of a minor girl. The book authored by Ajay Lamba, Additional Commissioner of Police, Jaipur, and Sanjiv Mathur, claiming to be a true story, was scheduled to be released today.
