New Delhi, October 5: The Delhi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party has demanded against the Vivek Vihar Police Station SHO Sanjay Sharma’s suspension for VIP treatment to self-styled god woman Radhe Maa. While Radhe Maa, dressed in her traditional red attire, sat on the SHO’s chair, the officer stood next to her with folded hands.
“Excuse being given that Radhe Maa was in the police station for security concern holds no ground. No security concern said that the SHO should make her sit on his chair,” Delhi BJP Media incharge Praveen Shankar Kapoor said.
Sharma and five more policemen have been sent to district lines over the incident, said Joint CP Eastern Range. Shahdara Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police has asked for a detailed report in the incident. Further action will be taken after investigation, said Delhi Police PRO Deependra Pathak.
In September, Mumbai’s Borivali Court had rejected Radhe Maa’s application requesting removal of her name from a domestic violence case filed against her. Also read: Asaram Bapu, Radhe Maa, Gurmeet Ram Rahim make it to ‘fake babas’ list
In 2016, Mumbai resident Niki Gupta had filed a complaint accusing Radhe Maa of instigating her in-laws against her for dowry. However, Borivali police, without informing the complainant, dropped Radhe Maa’s name from the list of accused on grounds of lack of evidence.
On April 28, Gupta submitted a plea to Bombay High Court in connection with the case. Justice Sadhana Jadhav directed the Borivali police to record her statement and allowed Gupta to assist the police in conducting further probe on the basis of her statement and, if necessary, take further action as per law.
Radhe Maa has also been accused of other offences.
On September 5, the Punjab and Haryana High Court directed the Punjab Police to file an FIR against Radhe Maa on plea of a Phagwara resident, Surender Mittal, a former Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) member.
Two years ago, Mittal had sought an FIR against Radhe Maa but received no response to his complaint from Punjab Police.
Sukhwinder Kaur alias Radhe Maa is from Punjab and later moved to Mumbai. She hosts regular religious events at her Radhe Maa Bhawan located in Boriwali now.
