Delhi police today filed a chargesheet in a court here against self-styled Godman Shiv Murat Dwivedi in a flesh trade racket case, alleging he amassed enormous wealth running into crores of rupees through this.

"Main accused Dwivedi is running the sex racket for last 10 to 12 years and has earned properties and wealth running into crores of rupees," the chargesheet, filed under various provisions of the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, said.

Police, which have filed the chargesheet against seven others, including six alleged call girls, said they have stumbled upon sufficient evidence to prosecute them.

Besides the present case, Dwivedi is booked in five other criminal cases, including that of a matter lodged under stringent Maharashtra Control Of Organized Crimes Act (MCOCA) for running the sex syndicate in and around the capital.

Police is yet to file the probe report in the MCOCA case.

"During the custodial interrogation, police, at the instance of accused, have recovered various incriminating documents relating to properties, investments and bank details," the chargesheet said.

It was also claimed Rs 1.55 lakh cash, some gold ornaments and VCDs were recovered from the car of Dwivedi at the time of the raid on February 26.

The court, which also extended the judicial custody of Dwivedi and co-accused Praveen Kumar, has fixed the matter for taking cognizance of the chargesheet on May 10.
