The suspect, identified as Lakhan aka Bhagat, used to call her to his home or visit her house to perform prayers. He used to ask her family members to leave them alone and sexually harass her, officers said citing the woman’s complaint.

“In her police complaint, the woman alleged that after the birth of two daughters, her family members were expecting a son. With the help of relatives, she came to know about a Hapur-based man, Lakhan aka Bhagat, who works as an occult practitioner and could fulfil her wish to have a son,” said investigating officer sub-inspector Ashutosh Pandey.

“When the survivor’s family members contacted him, the accused chalked down a plan for prayer and demanded the survivor’s mobile number on the pretext of discussing occult practice,” the officer said.

“Fed-up with her regular harassment, the woman finally gathered courage and narrated the ordeal to her husband,” stated the FIR.

A case under Section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered at the Dadri police station, said police, adding that efforts are on to nab the suspect.
