Self-proclaimed godman and former reality show contestant, Swami Om, was arrested from his east Delhi residence by the Delhi Police on Wednesday.

A case was registered against him in 2008 for his alleged involvement in a brawl. The case was registered at Lodhi Colony police station, but Om had been absconding, said the police. In 2014, a city court had declared him a proclaimed offender in the case.

“The interstate cell unit of the crime branch arrested Swami Sadachari alias Swami Om from Bhajanpura. He was wanted in a brawl incident in which a case was registered against him in 2008,” said Madhur Verma, DCP (Crime). Swami Om has been handed over to the local police and will be produced in court on Thursday.
