Ahmedabad, July 25 (ANI): Four teams of CID Crime Branch on Friday raided the Ashram of Asharam Bapu in Ahmedabad.

The ashram in the Gujarat town has been in the headlines ever since the death of two children at its Gurukul.

Earlier on July 18, people of the city had observed a shutdown against the alleged shoddy probe into the death of the children.

The bodies of Dipesh Praful Vaghela, 10, and his cousin Abhishek Shantilal Vaghela, 11, were found in the riverbed near the Asharam Bapus Ashram on the outskirts of the city on July 6. The bodies were recovered two days after the boys were reported to be missing.

It was alleged that the two boys were killed and thrown into the river after some esoteric ritual at the ashram. Police are yet to search a cellar in the ashram, which is studiously guarded by white robed men. (ANI)
