Mumbai: In a fresh trouble for self-proclaimed controversial godwoman Radhe Maa, a petition filed in the Bombay High Court on Tuesday sought a direction to the police to lodge an FIR against her for alleged cheating, obscenity and hurting religious sentiments.

Advocate Falguni Brahmbhatt, the petitioner, said she moved the court after the suburban Borivali police failed to take action on her complaint.

"It has been five days since I asked police to take action against Radhe Maa. But nothing was done," she said.

The petition accuses Radhe Maa of cheating innocent people, hurting their religious sentiments, and obscenity. It would come up for hearing in due course of time.

Mumbai police had last week registered a case against her after a woman alleged that Radhe Maa instigated her in-laws to harass her for dowry. Police have summoned the godwoman for questioning.
