In a major setback to self-styled religious guru Asaram Bapu, the Supreme Court on Monday refused to give him relief in connection with two rape cases registered against him.

The apex court bench headed by Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose will hear the matter next on November 28.

Asaram had earlier knocked the apex court’s door seeking bail on health grounds.

The Gujarat government told the apex court division bench that the rape case registered against Asaram would very likely proceed in an expeditious manner, adding that the trial would be completed within six months, so the bail should not be granted to him in the case.

The Supreme Court had earlier this month sought the response of the Centre and five states on a plea seeking a CBI probe into the alleged murder of children through black magic and attacks on 10 witnesses in Asaram Bapu rape cases.
