A former aide of Asaram on Friday accused him of committing about 1,000 rapes in his lifetime.


Ved Amrit Prajapati (40) claimed to have worked with Asaram for 18 years before he was ousted from the Ahmedabad ashram in 2005 for giving evidence against the godman in a case of two children's death under suspicious circumstances in Vadodara.

Prajapati was on Friday brought to Kota from Ahmedabad for investigation into a complaint of cheating against him by one Pawan Kumar of Kota, who is also a devotee of Asaram.

Prajapati accused Asaram of orchestrating half a dozen attacks on him, as he claimed to know about his "mischievous activities".

Investigation officer of Kota's Gumanpura police station, Dariyo Singh, however, said they were not taking the allegations seriously as Prajapati had not given any written complaint.
