From Bunty Chor to Rahul Mahajan and Seema Parihar, previous seasons of Bigg Boss have had people who have lived on the wrong side of the law. But to have a non-bailable arrest warrant against one of the participants during an ongoing season is bizarre! Reports have claimed that Om Swamiji, aka Vinodanand Jha has two different cases of theft and illegal possession of arms and a non-bailable arrest warrant was issued against him two days before the Bigg Boss 10 premiere.
An India Today report claimed Pramodh Jha, the younger brother of Swamiji, had accused him of breaking the lock of his bicycle shop in Lodhi Colony along with three men before stealing 11 bicycles, expensive spare parts, sale deed of the house and important documents. The swami was booked for trespass and theft in the shop in 2008.
Apart from the theft case, Om is also said to be involved in seven cases under the Arms Act and TADA. Obscene photos of women were also found in Swamiji’s possession which he allegedly used to extort money, it added.
The day Om Swamiji went inside the Bigg Boss house, was also the date for court hearing in the theft case - October 14. When he failed to appear for the hearing in the theft case, despite three previous warrants, the local court issued a non-bailable warrant, the report said.
Hindustan Times could not independently verify the reports.
