The Kandivli police were in the process of serving summons to self-proclaimed spiritual leader Radhe Maa alias Sukhwinder Kaur on Sunday and are likely to question her on Friday in connection with a case of dowry harassment, cheating and assault registered by a 32-year-old woman.
The police have also called the woman’s in-laws for questioning to verify the allegations. Radhe Maa told the media on Sunday she will cooperate with the police.
“We have served the summons to Radhe Maa at her Borivli residence, which she visits often. We will record her statement to verify the allegations,” said an officer from the Kandivli police station.
Spokesperson for Mumbai police Dhananjay Kulkarni confirmed this development.
Radhe Maa and six other people were booked by the Kandivli police on July 25 on the complaint of a Niki Nakul Gupta. In her complaint, Gupta alleged her husband Nakul and his family members Lata, Daulatkumar, Sandip, Jyoti and Jagmohan allegedly harassed her over various demands, including money.
“The complainant claimed the accused would taunt her, abuse her, harass her and would not allow her to keep the jewellery she brought along with her after marriage,” an officer said, adding the complainant alleged Radhe Maa instigated the accused to harass her because of which she has also been booked. The complaint was registered after a
Borivli court ordered the police to do so.
It was registered under sections 498(a), 406, 420, 323, 504, 506 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code and sections 3 and 4 of Prevention of Dowry Act.
