Even as the self styled godman that Asaram is and how he was convicted of raping a girl, many followers remain devoted to him nonetheless.
It is one such follower who was detained today outside the Central Jail in Jodhpur.
This happened as the follower reached near jail and attempted putting garland on his poster.
The policeman however, swung into action and detained the disciple where prohibitory orders had been put in place in view of a trial court verdict in the case in a rape case.
Even the poster was put on a wall of a corridor outside the jail boundary where the family members of prisoners wait.
The follower managed to reach there despite the high-security arrangements made in Jodhpur.
Both the roads towards the Central jail where Asaram Bapu is lodged have been sealed and access outside the jail has been given only to the media.
Meanwhile security had been reviewed and tightened in states like Rajasthan, Gujarat and Haryana.
Asaram has been accused of raping a teen girl from Uttar Pradesh.
The rape took place on the night of August 15, 2013.>
