Court rejects Radhe Maa’s request for removal from domestic violence case

MUMBAI: Borivli Metropolitan magistrate court on Friday rejected self-styled god-woman Radhe Maa’s application requesting removal of her name from a domestic violence case filed against her. A Mumbai resident Niki Gupta, in 2014, had filed a case of domestic violence against the god-woman and Gupta’s entire family. The court, in its order copy, have refused to allow Radhe Maa and the family members to move out of the case.

Raunak Agarwal, brother of the complainant, while speaking to DNA said, “The case was registered in 2014, when the so called god-woman, came to my sister’s house and she along with my sister’s family members started assaulting and abusing her. Thus we approached the police station and registered a complaint. However, for the past three years, the legal procedure did not move a step ahead, thus we moved the Bombay High court with our grievance, which requested the trial be completed at the fastest pace possible. Thus, this order by Borivli magistrate court has come after the High court’s order.”

Meanwhile, when contacted, Sanjeev Gupta, spokesperson for Radhe Maa, said that he was unaware of the orders and that if such an order had been passed by the lower court then an appeal in the higher court’s would definitely be filed.
