New Delhi: The ashram of BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand, who is accused of raping and physically exploiting a Shahjahanpur law student, was sealed by a special investigation team on Friday.

According to information, the SIT team sealed the Divya Dham ashram around 4am. Only one room has been left for the BJP leader. However, Chinmayanand's lawyer refuted the reports and said said that only a room was sealed.

"It is wrong to say that the ashram was sealed, only one room of the ashram was locked after questioning went on till 1am. Chinmayanand is confident that the SIT questioning will be fair and he is cooperating," lawyer Om Singh said.

An official said that Chinmayanand, who was interrogated from for seven on Thursday, was not present in the ashram when the SIT team arrived.

The woman, who had gone missing after she live-streamed her allegations against the BJP leader, was traced to Rajasthan by UP Police recently.

In the video, the student had alleged that Chinmayanand had been threatening to kill her and her family because she had evidence that could land him in trouble. She had also sought help from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath.
