Junagarh: Venting out their anger on religious guru Asaram Bapu, the Prajapati Samaj of Junagarh on Saturday burnt his posters and banners. The protest was held against the July 2008 incident in which two children were found dead in mysterious circumstances near Asaram’s Motera ashram in Gujarat. The Prajapati Samaj also warned Asaram against holding any kind of Satsang (religious lecture) in Junagarh.

Asaram Bapu and his son Narayan Sai both are accused in the mysterious death of Dipesh and Abhishek Waghela near Motera Gurukul in 2008. Defying summons, both the accused did not appear on eight occasions before the inquiry commission appointed to investigate the case of the Children’s death. Taking a strong exception of the defiance, the Chairman of the commission, D K Trivedi, has given them a last chance to appear before the commission.

Notably Dipesh and Abhishek Waghela, both disciples at Bapu’s Motera ashram, were found dead in mysterious circumstances in July 2008. Their mutilated dead bodies were found near the banks of Sabarmati River.

The parents of both the students alleged that the black magic practiced at the ashram was the reason behind the deaths. Interestingly in 2009, an associate of Asaram and Asaram’s son Narayan Sai had admitted that black magic practiced at the ashram was a reason behind the deaths. Meanwhile, the matter is being investigated by CID crime but amidst allegations of shielding Asaram and carelessness in the investigation, an inquiry commission was appointed under the chairmanship of retired judge D K Trivedi.
