Self-styled godman ‘Daati Maharaj’ booked on rape charges
A case has been registered against self-styled godman Daati Maharaj for allegedly raping a disciple. According to police sources, the case was registered in Fatehpur Beri on Sunday. It was later transferred to District Investigation Unit (DIU).
Daati Maharaj has been booked under Indian Penal Code, sections – 376, 377, 354 and 34. The woman has alleged that she was sexually assaulted inside Shani Dham two years ago. Because of fear, she didn’t file a complaint earlier as she felt intimidated by the self-styled godman.
