The advertisements also mention that Sai will take a legal recourse in the matter. City police had on Wednesday summoned him for questioning by serving notice to various ashrams in Gujarat run by the father-son duo.

The whereabouts of Sai are not known to police and the advertisements say anything about where he is holed up. "Our client has not gone away and will not run away," the advertisements, issued through his advocate Gautam Desai, said.

The advertisements alleged that the FIR against him was fabricated and facts in it were manipulated by the complainant. It further said that his client will take a legal recourse to protect himself.

Police had on Wednesday summoned Sai to appear before them by slapping a notice on him, in connection with the sexual assault case lodged against him and his father by two sisters.

Six police teams formed by Surat Police to trace Narayan Sai had claimed to have got vital clues regarding the case. On Wednesday, police had started videographing the entire ashram and conducted a thorough inspection of the premises.

Asaram, 72, was arrested in August on charges of sexually assaulting a minor girl and has been in prison in Jodhpur since then. Ahmedabad Police, probing the case of the elder sister, have procured a transfer warrant from a Gandhinagar court to question Asaram.

The Surat Police had recently registered two complaints - one against Asaram and another against Sai - of rape, sexual assault, illegal confinement and other charges.
