CUTTAK: Self-professed godman Alok Bisoi was today taken in two days' police custody in Cuttack.

Bisoi alias Anandatma Baba was arrested by police in Salepur locality yesterday on murder charges after the charred body of a 40-year-old youth was recovered from his Rameswar Ashram, about 20 km from here on Saturday afternoon.

A police official said the godman was quizzed by a team of sleuths inside the police station in presence of two other inmates of the Ashram in the afternoon after he was taken on police remand from the local sub-jail.

The sleuths are also examining Bisoi in connection with two other cases, including one FIR filed by his wife in a police station in nearby Kendrapara district alleging torture and domestic violence against the godman, the official said.

Soon after the news of the murder spread, a mob from the locality barged into the Ashram and vandalised the properties and set some parked vehicles on fire.
