The Jammu and Kashmir police have arrested a former assistant of the controversial godman Asaram Bapu in a case registered in 2013 in that state.

Satish Wadhawani (38), was produced before a magistrate here who granted the Jammu and Kashmir police his transit remand on Friday.

Wadhwani is facing a case under sections 120-B, 153 A, 194, 195, 295 and 383 of the Ranbir Penal Code at Navabad police station in Jammu and Kashmir.

Wadhawani, who worked as a driver and bodyguard for Asaram and his son Narayan Sai from 1994 to 2009, later fell out with them and made several public statements against the father-son duo. He had also taken police protection in Indore saying he was getting threats.
