Narayan Sai, son of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu, who is also serving a life sentence in a rape case, on Tuesday withdrew his plea in the Gujarat High Court seeking a 20-day temporary bail to meet his ailing father who he said was “in the last lap of life and may not survive”.

Sai’s lawyer I H Syed preferred to withdraw the plea after the division bench of Justice A S Supehia and Justice Vimal Vyas was told that Asaram was discharged from a hospital and was back in a jail in Jodhpur.

Syed told the court his client will bear the expenses for a police escort to and from Jodhpur from Surat, where Sai is jailed, if and when he is allowed to meet his father. He even produced a medical report showing that Asaram had suffered from cardiac arrest in jail on Monday.

The HC referred to a recent order passed by the Rajasthan High Court, which observed that Asaram was not inclined to be treated at AIIMS Delhi and only wanted Ayurvedic treatment. The court said it would first call for the opinion of a panel of doctors from AIIMS before deciding on the temporary bail plea.

“We will arrange a meeting on Zoom if you want to convince him to take treatment. We have to first ascertain whether he is in the ICU, able to speak and interact. Only then will we allow Zoom meet,” the HC said.

Festive offer

The court was then informed that Asaram was no longer in the hospital and was treated for his ailment in the jail itself.

“He went to the hospital, then went to jail… He suffered a heart attack and was being treated in the jail itself,” the court was told.
