New Delhi:

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to grant regular and interim bail on medical grounds to religious figure Asaram in a sexual assault case registered in Rajasthan.

The bench headed by Chief Justice S Khehar also rejected an interim bail plea on health grounds in another sexual offence case lodged in Gujarat.

“The instant plea is devoid of merit and hence dismissed,” the bench, also comprising Justice N V Ramana, said while dealing with the bail plea on health grounds.

The bench also rejected the plea for regular bail, after taking note of attacks on crucial witnesses and the attempts of the accused to delay the trial by examining prosecution witnesses on several dates.
