The Delhi Commission for Women and the Delhi Police on Sunday nabbed yet another self-styled godman from an ashram in the Janakpuri area of South West Delhi.

A 24-year-old lodged a complaint with the Delhi Commission of Women and had said that she was raped by a self-styled godman at the ashram and that she was also molested by her colleague, a woman.

She informed that she worked as a teacher in a leading school in Delhi NCR where she met a senior from her college Sunita (name changed) who was also a teacher in the same school.

Sunita introduced the victim to the accused Baba and took her to his ashram in Janakpuri. Sunita had narrated her own experience stating how she was miraculously cured by the Baba.

She has mentioned in the complaint that as she had eaten only fruits throughout the day, she felt extremely weak and expressed her desire to leave the ashram. She requested the Secretary to meet another day. However, Sunita and the Secretary insisted her to stay back to complete the healing session and Sunita convinced her to stay overnight.

"I was shocked when I saw Sunita entering my room semi-nude. Baba also entered the room and was completely naked. Thereafter, Sunita started touching me inappropriately and the Baba raped me," the victim said.

DCP South West Delhi Monika Bhardwaj said, “While the alleged godman, 40-year-old Hari Narayan, allegedly raped the woman after spiking her food, his secretary too assisted him in the crime and touched the woman inappropriately.”

Bhardwaj further added that the accused godman has been arrested and would be produced in the Dwarka Court on Monday.
