    The Rajasthan High Court on Tuesday (September 16) deferred till September 18 the hearing on the bail petition of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu, in jail for alleged sexualassault of a teenage girl. The high court, which started the hearing of the case today, also directed the prosecution to produce the case diary in the court on next hearing.In a jam-packed court room, senior advocate Ram Jethmalani, who appeared as defence counsel, argued that the FIR, the scene of crime, age of the girl and the entire caseitself was fabricated. Jethmalani also mentioned that the girl (victim) was afflicted with a chronic disease, "which draws a woman to a man", and said this was subject to police investigation. After completion of arguments by the defence, Justice Nirmal Jeet Kaur deferred the proceedings till September 18 and directed the prosecution to put up the case diary in the court on the next date.
