The Asaram Bapu ashram is back in the news and the death of an ashram boy at Chhindwada, bordering district of Madhya Pradesh has triggered a fresh controversy.

The body of a four-year old boy was found mysteriously near the toilet of its ashram hostel at Chhindwara on Tuesday evening.

The body of Ram Krishna Yadav (4), a nursery student of Asaram Bapu Gurukunj—a residential school— was found on Tuesday evening in the ashram's bathroom. The ashram children could not go out and play last evening following heavy rains. Some children then spotted Ram Krishna, lying in a nearby bathroom.

Ram Krishna was enrolled in the residential school on February 11 this year. He joined the school for studies only on July 2. There are 371 students in the Gurukul.
