A woman who had lodged a rape complaint against self-styled godman Asaram Bapu is mysteriously missing from her house since last week. A missing complaint was registered Tuesday at Surat’s Kamrej police station. The complainant was under police protection, but had asked the police escorts to leave before leaving for Surat’s Amroli area to attend a function.

Before she went missing, the elder sister had approached the Court to change her statement against Asaram recorded under CrPC 164. The court rejected the application Monday, stating that once a statement is given under CrPC 164, it should not be changed under any circumstances.

The woman is the elder of two sisters who had on September 6, 2013, lodged rape complaints against Asaram and his son Narayan Sai at Jehnagirpura police station. While the elder sister had complained against Asaram, the younger had accused Narayan Sai. Earlier, both sisters were disciples of the godman and his son.

Police sources said that on December 14, the elder sister told the four constables deputed to escort her to leave as she was going to Amroli with her husband and son and will return on December 17.

The policemen, without taking permission from higher authorities, agreed. When the family did not return on December 17, the constables called up their cellphone but found it switched off. They then informed their higher-ups. Following a search operation, the missing complaint was filed.

Police inspector L D Vaghadia said, “While staying at Kamrej, she had repeatedly denied taking police protection, but it was our duty to provide her security. She had requested the teams not to accompany her to the Amroli function as that might reveal her identity”. The officer said they were taking the help of her younger sister and parents to locate her. “We have also sent our teams to Saurashtra (where the woman earlier stayed). We have come to know that they had also taken leave from her son’s school,” he added.

              Christian missionaries in India have huge support from foreign countries. They have financial support and muscle power. They have converted almost the entire north east India into christianity by hook and crook. Bapuji and Shankaracharya were innocent Hindu saints who were framed in false charges like murder and rape. It is the christian missionary who have funded the media and all the witnesses to frame cases against Hindu saints. The agenda of christian missionary is to malign Hindu saints and Hinduism so that India can become a christian country, which will finally help in imposing christian tax as imposed by churches. Funds to christian missionaries must be banned. Government land given to churches free of cost must be taken back. All the christian insutions must be thoroughly investigated for foreign funds and conversion to christianity must be banned for once and all.
