While appearing before the Rajasthan High Court to seek for Asaram’s bail on Monday, Jethmalani mentioned that the girl (victim) was afflicted with a chronic disease, "which draws a woman to a man", and said this was subject to police investigation.

He also claimed that the FIR, the scene of crime, age of the girl and the entire case itself was fabricated.
Reaction on social media was immediate and angry. "Ram Jethmalani is a vicious combination of Thakral of Meri Jung and Chadhdha of Damini," tweeted @indiantweeter, referring to much reviled lawyers of Bollywood cinema.

The social networking site Twitter was abuzz with angry reactions over Jethmalani’s comment. Moreover, ‘Ram Jethmalani’ was running as hot twitter trend on Tuesday.
