Bombay High Court seeks information about action taken on complaints against controversial 'godwoman' Radhe Maa

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Tuesday asked the city police to file an affidavit stating what steps they have taken regarding the complaints received against self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa.

The division bench of Justices VM Kanade and Shalini Phansalkar-Joshi was hearing a public interest litigation filed by advocate Falguni Brahmbhatt seeking an FIR against Radhe Maa on charges of obscenity, cheating and hurting religious sentiments.

Brahmbhatt moved the court after suburban Borivali police allegedly failed to take action on her complaint.

Senior advocate Milind Sathe, appearing for Radhe Maa, argued that the PIL was nothing but a publicity seeking petition and that the allegations levelled in it were frivolous.

Prosecutor Sandeep Shinde told the court that police had recorded Brahmbhatt's statement. "If the police find some material (against Radhe Maa), then appropriate action will be taken," he said.

The bench adjourned the hearing to August 27, asking police to file a short affidavit.
