MUMBAI: Mumbai police would soon issue summons to self-styled 'godwoman' Radhe Maa for recording her statement in connection with a dowry harassment case, a top police officer said here.

"Radhe Maa, who was out of Mumbai for the last few days, returned to the city today. We will first issue summons to her, after which her statement will be recorded," DCP (Detection) Dhananjay Kulkarni said here.

According to police, a 32-year-old woman has accused thecontroversial 'godwoman' of instigating her in-laws, who are her followers for many years, to demand dowry from her.

"Police has so far issued summons to six persons, including the in-laws of the complainant. However, summons had not been served on Radhe Maa, who the seventh accused in the case," Mukund Pawar, senior inspector of Kandivali police station said.

The summons were issued after police registered an FIR against Radhe and others last week, including the in-laws of the woman who has accused them of "mental and physical harassment for dowry".

According to police, the statement of all the six accused will be recorded from tomorrow.

"So far, police has tried to gather evidence and other material substantiating the allegations of the complainant," Pawar said adding that these evidence were collected by enquiring with the neighbours, relatives and friends of the complainant as well as of those of the accused.

All the seven accused have been booked under relevant sections of the IPC and Dowry Prohibition Act, police said.
