NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear the bail plea filed by self- styled religious figure Asaram Bapu accused in two rape cases.  

The apex court on November 21 refused to give him relief in connection with two rape cases registered against him.
Asaram had earlier knocked the doors of the apex court seeking bail on health grounds.
The Gujarat Government had earlier told the top court division bench that the rape case registered against Asaram would very likely proceed in an expeditious manner, adding that the trial would be completed within six months so the bail should not be granted to him in the case.
The apex court had last month sought the response of the Centre and five states on a plea seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the alleged murder of children through black magic and attacks on ten witnesses in Asaram Bapu rape cases.
