Patna: Self-proclaimed godman Nirmal Baba on Monday moved the Patna High Court challenging the legality of the non-bailable arrest warrant issued by a court in Araria in Bihar against him.
Vindhyachal Prasad Singh, an advocate, filed the application on behalf of the Baba.
The court of Araria Chief Judicial Magistrate Satyendra Razak had issued a warrant of arrest on Saturday on the basis of an FIR filed on April 21 by complainant Rakesh Kumar Singh who alleged that the Baba forced him to pay Rs 1,000 in three installments between January and March 2011 on promise of fame and fortune.
Singh also sent by courier counterfoils of the deposits of Rs 300 twice and Rs 400 in the Baba`s account at the Punjab and National Bank to his Delhi address as sought, the FIR alleged.
According to Araria Superintendent of Police Shivdeep Lande, the accusation was found prima facie true following which he directed the investigating officer to move the court and seek a warrant of arrest.
