Yet another self-styled ‘Godman’ accused of rape; this time in Mathura

Looks like Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim

Looks like Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim is not alone when it comes to exploiting his trusting disciples as another such ‘Baba’ has been arrested on charges of raping a physically disabled disciple at his ashram in Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura district. As per media reports, the victim hails from West Bengal and was living at his ashram in Barsana district for several months. She accused the ‘Baba’ of raping her repeatedly and subsequently throwing her out of the ashram, when she got pregnant. A team of West Bengal police, accompanied by the local cops, reached the ashram on Thursday night and arrested the self-styled godman. Talking to ANI,  Superintendent of Police, Mathura, Aditya Kumar Shukla said,”We are taking the “baba” to Bengal, as that’s where the complaint was lodged.” The accused, however, denied the allegations and claimed that the victim wanted to oust him from the ashram and hence had implicated him in a false case. “I didn’t do anything, I don’t even know the girl. One day a couple left their daughter with me asking me to take care of her,” the accused told ANI.
