New Delhi: The hearing on the bail plea of controversial self-styled godman Shiv Murat Dwivedi, who is in jail under stringent MCOCA for allegedly running a sex racket, was on Friday deferred following the promotion and transfer of a trial judge of a Delhi court.
The bail application of Dwivedi has now been listed for
hearing on August 10.
Additional Sessions Judge S K Sarvaria, who was empowered
to hear cases lodged under Maharashtra Control of Organised
Crimes Act, was today elevated as District and Sessions Judge
of Rohini courts here.
Dwivedi, alias Ichchadhari Sant Swami Bhimanand Ji
Maharaj Chitrakootwale, has moved a fresh application seeking
interim bail for 30 days on the ground that he will have to
arrange for school fees of his daughter.
The self-styled godman, in his plea filed through
advocate M S Khan, said "all the bank accounts of mine
(Dwivedi) have been sealed and consequently, my daughter, a
student of class VIIth, would be forced to discontinue her
studies if the fees are not paid to the school.
