MUMBAI: Self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa was today questioned for the second time by Mumbai police in connection with a dowry harassment case.

"Maa was summoned by us with regard to the domestic violence case and dowry harassment case," senior inspector of Kandivali police station, Mukund Pawar, said.

She appeared at 12.15 PM and as many as 23 questions were asked in connection with the case during 30-minutes quizzing. Maa denied all the allegations against her, he said.

Police said that Maa was asked about a person who is often referred as Daddy, whose name is being repeatedly appearing in the statements of complainant woman and other accused.

They said other questions like -- whether she demanded any expensive cosmetics, asked for gold or money from the complainant and how many properties does she possess -- were also asked to her.

According to police, Maa claimed that she does not possess any property and that she resides at her devotees' place.

On August 14, Radhe Maa was questioned for over four hours by police in connection with a dowry harassment case during which she denied all allegations against her.

The Bombay High Court on the same day provided her temporary relief by granting interim pre-arrest bail.

Radhe Maa is accused by a 32-year-old woman of instigating her in-laws, who are the self-styled godwoman's followers, to demand dowry.

Meanwhile, other accused, whose statement has already been recorded in the case, can again be quizzed, police said.
