He has been on the run ever since to prevent police custody. Surat court will hear Narayan Sai's anticipatory bail in the case on Wednesday.

Asaram had been lodged in Jodhpur jail since August in another sexual assault case before he was brought to Ahmedabad on October 15 after Gujarat Police produced a production warrant against him and was granted Asaram's custody by Jodhpur sessions court.
