MUMBAI: Self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa today turned up at the Kandivali Police Station here in response to the summons issued by the Mumbai Police for questioning with regard to a dowry harassment case.

Senior inspector Mukund Pawar said, "Presently I will not be able to tell anything with regard to the case and the statement of the accused as well as of Radhe Maa."

Her statement will be recorded today by police in response to allegations levelled by a 32-year-old woman that Radhe Maa instigated her in-laws, who are her followers, to demand dowry from her, police said.

The Kandivali police had last week issued summons to Radhe Maa and other six others in connection with the case filed on August 5 in which the woman alleged that she was physically and mentally harassed by her in-laws for dowry.

A local court had yesterday denied pre-arrest bail to Sukhvinder Kaur alias Radhe Maa in connection with the case.

Also, BJP MLA in Gujarat Vasan Ahir yesterday said he had written to the state Home department and demanded probe against the controversial godwoman in connection with a case where seven members of a family committed suicide in Anjar tehsil (Ahir's constituency) of Kutch district in March 2014.

Ahir alleged that the family had sold its entire land and given the godwoman Rs 1.35 crores because Radhe Maa had promised them place in heaven if they paid her the money and became her life-time disciples.

After realising that they had been duped, they committed suicide, he alleged.

Further in Mumbai, advocate Rajkumar Rajhans yesterday filed a complaint with the Airport police station, alleging that Radhe Maa had carried a trishul (trident) with her at an airport and on a flight during her recent travels. Police had not registered any case yet, however.

In Thane, near Mumbai, an NGO called 'Support' claimed that the high-end car used by Radhe Maa during her recent visit to Aurangabad was purchased using fake documents. It demanded probe by the police and the Thane Regional Transport Office.
