Jodhpur: Controversial preacher Asaram Bapu, arrested from his Indore ashram for sexually assaulting the 16-year-old daughter of a follower by Jodhpur police, was on Sunday subjected to a “potency test”, which confirmed that the 72-year-old’s libido is active. He was made to take the test after he told cops that he was impotent and therefore incapable of committing the crime he was charged with.
The police said Asaram’s testing positive gives them strong “circumstantial medical evidence” against the self-claimed godman. Jodhpur commissioner of police Biju Gorge Joseph said a team of doctors was called to the Rajasthan Armed Constabulary headquarters where Asaram was questioned.
“A potency test was conducted on him, which confirmed that he was strong enough to commit the crime of sexual assault and rape on the 16-year-old girl,” said Joseph. Another senior police officer said this was “normal procedure”. Potency test proves in a rape case that the offender is capable of committing the crime, he said.
Asaram was questioned for four hours at RAC headquarters and then produced in a court that sent him to one-day police custody, said Joseph. Although the police had sought two-day police remand, the court of district and sessions judge Manoj Kumar Vyas allowed only one day.
