Six police personnel of east Delhi's Vivek Vihar police station, have found themselves in trouble after photos emerged that they had accorded a special welcome to self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa.
Radhe Maa was seen seated on the chair of station house officer (SHO) Sanjay Sharma, who was seen with smiling with folded hands and a 'chunri' round his neck.
Here's more about it.
SHO Sharma told Hindustan Times that Radhe Maa was heading to a Ramleela on September 28.
He said her followers told him she wanted to visit a washroom, so he let her use the one in his office.
After using the toilet, she sat on his chair without his permission.
He said he folded his hands and requested her to leave the office.
A police official said SHO Sharma has been relieved of duty and reportedly sent to district lines. "The matter has been taken very seriously and an inquiry at the DCP level initiated," the official added. Further action would be taken based on a 'conduct report.'
Radhe Maa, previously known as Sukhvinder Kaur, rose to fame after photos of her wearing a mini-skirt went viral online.
She is known to "bless" her devotees by hugging and kissing them. Her followers believe she has supernatural powers and that she's the embodiment of Goddess Durga.
She's often seen carrying a trishul, wearing Indian bridal clothes and dancing to Bollywood songs during satsangs.
Radhe Maa faces allegations of dowry harassment by a woman who claimed the godwoman influenced her in-laws to demand money. She claims her in-laws tortured her on Radhe Maa's advice and forced her to serve the godwoman by giving her massages and doing her chores.
