In more trouble for controversial ‘godwoman’ Radhe Maa, the Bombay High Court has directed the city police to file a detailed affidavit on its investigation into a complaint alleging that she is running a sex racket in the name of religion.
Reports on Tuesday claimed that a bench of Justice SVM Kanade and Shalini Phansalkar-Joshi passed the order after hearing a PIL by advocate Falguni Brahmbhatt accusing Radhe Maa of obscenity and police of inaction on her complaint against the self-styled godwoman yesterday.
The Mumbai Police had earlier submitted a report, saying that an FIR has been registered against Radhe Maa and investigation is on.
Brahmbhatt, however, countered by saying that she has submitted additional information to the police but no action was taken in that.
“Sex racket is going on. Young boys and girls are lured by this lady. On the pretext of getting ashirwad, they are forced to have sex,” advocate Brahmbhatt said.
She also submitted that the charitable trust run by Radhe Maa is not registered.
“Crores of rupees are collected,” she alleged.
The court then directed the police to file a detailed affidavit in two weeks stating what steps it has taken.
