CHENNAI: Shiva Shankar Baba, a religious guru who allegedly absconded after the Chennai police registered a case against him for sexually abusing schoolchildren, was arrested by the CBCID in Delhi on Wednesday.
As soon as the case was transferred from the Chennai police to the CBCID, Shiva Shankar Baba went missing and a few days back, it was reported that he was admitted to a private hospital in Dehradun.
However, when the CBCID team arrived at Dehradun, Shiva Shankar Baba was missing from the hospital. Police sources said he was tracked and arrested from a place on the outskirts of Delhi.
