Terming the sexual assault case against Asaram ‘a conspiracy’, his lawyer said on Sunday the godman was innocent and the matter was fabricated.

“Bapu is innocent and has been falsely fabricated in the case,” Rajasthan high court senior attorney Jagmal Singh Choudhary said, adding that they would prove every allegation wrong before the court.

“We will prove who was behind this conspiracy,” Asaram’s counsel said, adding that lodging the FIR five days after the supposed offence indicated that a conspiracy was afoot and the FIR was filed in Delhi instead of Jodhpur, where the alleged incident took place.

“The medical report is negative and the victim has not even used the word ‘rape’ in her FIR,” Choudhary said.

He said Asaram was cooperating with the police.
