SC allows Asaram to be brought to AIIMS for medical check-up


The Supreme Court on Monday allowed self-styled religious figure Asaram Bapu to be taken to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here from Jodhpur jail under police custody for medical examination.
A bench of Justices A K Sikri and N V Ramana refused the plea of Asaram Bapu, seeking permission to stay at his ashram in the national capital during the period of check-up.
The request came after a three-part board of specialists from AIIMS educated the zenith court that imperative supplies for assessment of Asaram’s restorative condition were not there in Jodhpur correctional facility and he should have been conveyed to the organization for appropriate examination.
