"If you see the medical report of the girl, you will know that she was not at all assaulted. There is not even a scratch on her body. All allegations against Asaram Bapu are false and baseless," Asaram's counsel Ishkaran Bhandari said.

The 16-year-old girl had registered an FIR against the self-styled godman for allegedly sexually abusing her at Jodhpur ashram.

Rahul Vijaywargia, another lawyer representing Asaram, alleged that there was purposeful delay in registration of FIR against Asaram. "This shows there is a conspiracy behind filing of the FIR. Even though the investigation in the case is yet to begin, the FIR itself appears vague," he said.
