The Jammu and Kashmir police today arrested a former assistant of the controversial godman Asaram Bapu in a case registered in 2013 in that state. Satish Wadhawani (38), was produced before a magistrate here who granted the J and K police his transit remand.
Wadhwani is facing a case under sections 120-B, 153 A, 194, 195, 295 and 383 of the Ranbir Penal Code at Navabad police station in Jammu and Kashmir.
Wadhawani, who worked as driver and bodyguard for Asaram and his son Narayan Sai from 1994 to 2009, later fell out with them and made some public statements against the father-son duo. He had also taken police protection in Indore saying he was getting threats.
