Court says matter will be heard as soon as possible But court has not give a particular date for next hearing.Earlier in August, the apex court had expressed concern over the delay in the hearing of the case and had asked the Gujarat trial court to consider Asaram Bapu’s case urgently and finish the trial in a time bound manner. The top court had earlier rejected Asaram’s bail plea several times.The Jodhpur Police arrested Asaram on August 3, 2013 in rape case and since then, he is in prison.
