Asaram urges Gandhinagar court for a fast track trial in the rape case filed against him.
Self-styled godman Asaram has written a letter to a local court in Gandhinagar seeking fast track trial in a case filed by a Surat-based girl accusing him of rape.
He (Asaram) has sent a letter through Jodhpur prison authorities, where he is lodged at present, to expedite the trial of the rape case against him. He has urged in the letter that he is an elderly person and he has been framed in a false case.

After considering the contents of the letter, Additional Sessions Court judge RA Ghoghari posted the case for hearing on 26 October.
Two Surat-based sisters had lodged separate complaints against Asaram and his son Narayan Sai accusing them of rape, sexual assault and illegal confinement.
