The report further said that a special bench of justice Sandeep Mehta and Vineet Kumar Mathur dismissed the petition and stated that the trial court had already established that the girl was below 18 years age at the time of the crime. Asaram Bapu was found guilty of raping a minor girl in Manai village near Jodhpur on August 2013 and was sentenced to life imprisonment in April last year by Jodhpur Schedule Caste and Scheduled Tribe Court.
