Indore: Trouble seems to be growing for the jailed self-styled Asaram as a case has been lodged against his son. A woman from Indore has lodged a case against Narayan Sai alleging that he fraudulently got her married to his disciple.

A case has been filed against Sai for cheating, criminal intimidation and criminal conspiracy.

The woman said she was tortured and Narayan Sai gave her death threats. "I have been tortured. Narayan Sai has been giving me death threats to not disclose this to anyone. That's why I wasn't able to gather courage till now to come out in open."

He had earlier sparked a controversy alleged that the minor girl who made the charges against Asaram is mentally unstable. He said, "The girl who is levelling allegations is mentally unstable, the allegations on Asaram Bapu are false."

He also added that the people of Asaram's ashram had even informed the girl's parents that her mental condition was not stable. He made these comments at a satsang (religious gathering) in Rajkot in Gujarat.

Asaram has been sent to jail for 14 days by a Jodhpur local court after a 15-year-old alleged that he sexually assaulted her in his Jodhpur ashram.
