Asaram Bapu

Self-styled Godman Asaram, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in April 2018 by a Jodhpur Court, has sent a mercy plea to the Governor of Rajasthan Kalyan Singh requesting dilution of his life sentence. Asaram was given the punishment after the court found him guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl living in his ashram in 2013.  

Asaram, who’s 77 years old, through the mercy plea, has pleaded for dilution of his life sentence terming the punishment as ?gruelling? and has requested to consider his old age. Singh has sent the mercy plea to the Department of Home Affairs seeking a detailed report on the plea.

The department has forwarded the plea to the Jodhpur Central Jail administration, which has sought a report from the district administration and police. Once the jail administration receives the report, it will send it to the Director General (Jail) of Rajasthan.

Earlier in July 2018, the self-styled godman had moved to High Court and challenged the sentence. His petition, however, is yet to be heard.

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to twitter to inform netizens that he had lost his brand new unboxed phone in Nagpur on Tuesday.

Kohli, who is in the city for first test match against Australia on Thursday,  said, “Nothing beats the sad feeling of losing your new phone without even unboxing it  Has anyone seen it?”

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’ 

The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Bombay High Court rejected stay plea filed by CBI paving way for the release of ex-Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Ex-Home Ministe Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur. 

The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency. 

“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.



The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”
