After spending 17 months behind bars in connection with an alleged rape case, self-styled godman Asaram’s son Narayan Sai on Tuesday walked out of Lajpor Central Jail here on three weeks’ temporary bail.

"The Gujarat High Court had on Monday granted 21-day temporary bail to Narayan Sai to attend to his ailing mother.

He was released from Lajpor jail on Tuesday at 11.35 AM," a jail official said.

After being released from the jail, Sai left for Ahmedabad where his mother Lakshmiben will undergo a surgery for a cervical chord ailment, said the official.

Sai will be escorted by 22 policemen, including two crime branch men, a sub-inspector of Surat police along with 18 jawans of State Reserve Police Force (SRPF) during the bail period, he said.

The Gujarat High Court had on Monday granted conditional temporary bail to Sai, who will remain under police surveillance during his bail period.

The HC also ordered Sai to surrender in four days from the date of his release, if his mother’s surgery does not take place till then.
