A case was filed in a local court in Muzaffarpur against spiritual leader Asaram Bapu for his remarks in connection with the Delhi gang-rape case and the court has taken cognisance of it.

The complaint case against the spiritual leader was filed by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate(CJM) SP Singh, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The petitioner charged Asaram Bapu with allegedly insulting women in general and hurting people's sentiments by passing controversial remarks during his sermon in Rajasthan's Tonk district last week in which he had blamed the Delhi gangrape victim for the incident as much as the rapists.

Ojha prayed for stringement punishment to the spiritual leader for his 'condemnable views' in the Delhi gang-rape case at a time when the entire nation was outraged and protests were taking place across the country demanding enactment of strict law against the rapists.
