The body of a girl, who was missing for a few days, was recovered from an alto car parked inside the ashram of self-styled godman and rape convict Asaram Bapu’s ashram in Uttar Pradesh’s Gonda.
The police have sent the body for post-mortem and sealed the ashram located in Bahraich road falling under the Dehat Kotwali area in Gonda.
The police have also taken a person from the ashram into custody for questioning in the matter.
Asaram Bapu was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2018 after a special court in Jodhpur convicted him of rape. He was found guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl in his Jodhpur ashram in 2013.
