Arrested controversial ‘godman’ Baba Rampal today rejected charges that he had asked thousands of his followers to be kept “hostage” for past several days inside his ashram at Barwala to evade police action in a contempt of court case.

“Yeh jhuthee ilzaam hein (these are false allegations),” 63-year-old godman told reporters after his medical examination was conducted at General Hospital here.

Asked about claims of his followers that they had been kept hostage by his private armed commandos and other henchmen, Rampal in his first reaction after his arrest, said, “No, this is not true….”

As a volley of questions were fired at him, Rampal kept walking towards a waiting police vehicle, jostling his way through the battery of mediapersons who surrounded him.
