Asaram Bapu's daughter-in-law on Saturday accused the self-styled godman and his son Narayan Sai, of mentally torturing her and sought protection from the police.
 
Both the father and the son are currently lodged in jail in connection with separate rape cases.
 
Janki (38), who is separated from Sai, has also sought protection from police alleging that her family members and relatives were being threatened over phone to withdraw cases of domestic violence and alimony that she had filed against Sai in various local courts earlier, a PTI report states.
 
While Sai is in Surat jail under various offences including rape, Asaram has been in jail in Jodhpur since August 2013 over allegations of raping a schoolgirl in one of his ashrams.
 
Many witnesses who have accused the father-son duo have been killed or have gone missing since 2013.
 
Janaki also alleged in her police complaint that Sai established illicit relations with other women for many years after their marriage in 1997, causing her mental torture.
 
She also accused Sai of indulging in religious hypocrisy and impregnating his disciple, the report adds.
 
The police have recorded Janki's statement.
