The Jodhpur court will pronounce the verdict in Asaram rape case on April 25

The security measures come after followers of another guru, Gurmeet Ram Rahim, ran amok after he was found guilty of rape past year.

Asaram has been convicted under Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act. The Rajasthan high court has asked the trial court to deliver its verdict within the jail premises.

Final arguments in the Asaram case had been completed by the special court for SC/ST cases on April 7 and the court had kept the order reserved for April 25. We shared the info with the media persons, who started chasing him.

Asaram, meanwhile, is set to appeal the verdict.

Asaram's spokesperson Neelam Dubey said they will talk to their legal team and decide the future course of action. Asaram Bapu also tried to resist his arrest citing ill health and death of a relative. The court has sentenced life imprisonment. The incident occured on August 15, 2013.

The Supreme Court had also rejected several of Asaram's bail pleas. Witnesses were even attacked in court.

Rajasthan Police have imposed section 144 in Jodhpur till April 30 as a precautionary measure, reports said.

"My daughter is happy today", said the father of the rape survivor who was 16 when she was raped in Asaram's ashram near Jodhpur, while her parents waited outside. "We have full respect for the courts". She stood by her testimony throughout the trial. He is under judicial custody since September 2, 2013.

Jodhpur is on high alert because of concerns there could be violence from the guru's supporters, reports BBC.

Truth will catch up with Amit Shah: Rahul Gandhi
The judge had also confided to his family that he would rather retire or take a transfer than to take the bribe. The BJP on Thursday said that the public interest litigation (PIL) filed over the death of Judge B.H.

Through every attempt to break the family, the girl never wavered, never changed her statement.

Asaram's followers are still backing their guru.

Not just witnesses, even reporters covering the story were threatened. Shockingly, five of the six people on the "hit list", including Bhagchandani, have already been targeted. He added that his life is constantly under threat.

Amrut Prajapat, Asaram's doctor, was shot in Gujarat's Rajkot in June 2014. The lawyers of Asaram demanded to reduce the punishment for the accused. Two other accused Sharad and Shilpi have also been held guilty. Gupta died on the spot, leaving behind his wife Varsha and two young children.

In February 2015, Rahul K Sachan, a witness in the case was stabbed outside the local court. Partly paralysed from the multiple stab wounds, Sachan, who has since returned home to Lucknow, is acutely depressed and suffers from unpredictable memory lapses. The victim was a resident of Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh and was a student there. "The disciples wanted me to show the age to be more than it actually was so as to suit them", he said after the verdict. The three states were also told to deploy additional forces in sensitive places, a Home Ministry official said.
