Mumbai: Mumbai sessions court on Thursday rejected an anticipatory bail plea of the controversial god woman Radhe Maa, who has been accused in a dowry harassment case.

On Sunday, the Mumbai Police had issued summons to Radhe Maa for recording her statement in connection with a dowry harassment case and other issues.

She had rubbished the dowry charges levelled against her by a woman from Kandivali and said she had nothing to do with her family dispute.

In her complaint last week, the 32-year-old woman alleged that Radhe Maa instigated her husband and in-laws to demand dowry from her, though she had given them jewellery worth over Rs.102 crore at the time of her marriage.

She claimed Radhe Maa asked her in-laws, including her chartered accountant husband, to make more dowry demands on her later and caused “mental and physical torture”.

Taking cognisance of the complaint, police on Monday began recording the statements of at least five persons named as accused by the complainant at Kandivali police station.

The action follows registration of an FIR against Radhe Maa and seven others, including the woman’s in-laws, in the matter, charging them under the Indian Penal Code and the Dowry Prohibition Act.
