Mumbai: Controversial self-styled 'godwoman' Radhe Maa, facing charges of involvement in a dowry harassment case and also of instigating several people to commit suicide, will be grilled again by the Mumbai Police on Wednesday.
As per reports, Radhe Maa arrived at the Kandivali Police station in Mumbai today for questioning in connection with the cases registered against her.
Activist-lawyer Falguni Brahmbhatt had recently lodged a separate complaint at the Borivali police station against Radhe Maa for running a business disguised as religion and misleading people.
Earlier, a woman had alleged that Radhe Maa instigated her husband and in-laws to demand dowry from her, even though she had given them jewellery worth over several crores at the time of the marriage.
In her complaint lodged by the Kandivali police, the 32-year-old complainant had claimed that Radhe Maa allegedly asked her in-laws, including her chartered accountant husband, to make more dowry demands from her.
Radhe Maa claims to be a self-confessed fan of actor and former adult movie star Sunny Leone. Her pictures in short dresses, gyrating to Bollywood tunes with her devotees during satsangs (religious discourses) have gone viral on the social media networks.
Meanwhile, a Mumbai-based organisation, 'Kutch Ladayak Manch', had told news channels that Radhe Maa was responsible for suicide of seven persons on March 7, 2014, at Ningal in Anjar tehsil of Kutch district in Gujarat.
When asked about this at a press conference, Radhe said the allegation was false. "Please check the background of that complainant," she said.
A group of people in Mumbai had given an application to Kandivali police requesting them to probe the suicide of nearly half a dozen persons in Kutch.
Radhe Maa, however, appears unfazed with all controversies surrounding her and claims that she is a "pure and pious" woman.
The controversy stricken godwoman has also been accused of obscenity.
