Surat: Narayan Sai has been produced before the Sessions court in Surat in a case relating to the sexual assault case filed by a woman.

Sai was arrested by the Crime Branch of Delhi police from the Delhi-Haryana border on Wednesday. He had been absconding for the past 59 days.

The Police had booked Asaram and Sai on charges of rape, sexual assault, illegal confinement and other offences on the complaint lodged by the sisters.

While the younger sister accused Sai of repeated raping her between 2002 and 2005 when she was leaving in Surat Ashram, the elder one accused Asaram of sexual assaults between 1997 and 2006 when she had been living in his ashram.

Asaram (75) was arrested in August on charges of sexually assaulting a minor girl at his Jodhpur ashram in Rajasthan and was lodged in jail there.

He was brought to city and interrogated in connection with the sexual assault complaint before he was taken back to Jodhpur.

The complaint against Sai was registered at Jehangirpura police station in Surat, while the one against Asaram was transferred to Ahmedabad as the alleged incident happened there.
