Mumbai: Self-styled godwoman Sukhwinder Kaur alias Mamtamai Shri Radhe Guru Maa may be arrested on Friday, claim reports.

A Mumbai court had yesterday rejected Radhe Maa's anticipatory bail plea.

The godwoman is currently being questioned by the Mumbai Police at the Kandivali Police station in connection with a dowry harassment case and may be teken into custody, say reports, if her answers are not satisfactory.  

In her complaint last week, a 32-year-old woman had alleged that Radhe Maa instigated her husband and in-laws to demand dowry from her, though she had given them jewellery at the time of her marriage.

The woman had alleged that Radhe Maa had instigated her in-laws, who have been the godwoman's followers for the past several years.

Radhe Maa rubbished the dowry charges levelled against her and said she had nothing to do with the family dispute.

She is also facing allegations of instigating several men to commit suicide.

Born as Sukhvinder Kaur, Radhe Maa hails from an affluent family of Gurdaspur and her father was a government servant in Punjab.

Educated upto senior secondary level, she dropped out of school and got married at the age of 18 to a businessman, Mohan Singh, of Hoshiarpur and the couple has three children.

However, she renounced the world at the age of 23 and was initiated as a 'sadhvi' by Mahant Ramdin Das 1008 of Paramhans Bagh Dera, in Hoshiarpur.

Since the past few years, Radhe Maa has made Borivali her home where a devotee donated a building to her for her religious work.
