Mumbai: Self-styled godwoman Mamtamai Radhe Guru Maa, known for her glamorous life-style, has been booked in an alleged dowry harassment case, an official said here on Thursday.
A woman has alleged that Radhe Maa instigated her husband and in-laws to demand dowry from her, even though she had given them jewellery worth over Rs.102 crore at the time of the marriage.
In her complaint lodged by the Kandivali police last week, the 32-year-old complainant has claimed that Radhe Maa allegedly asked her in-laws, including her chartered accountant husband, to make more dowry demands from her.
Activist-lawyer Falguni Brahmbhatt also lodged a separate complaint at Borivali police station against Radhe Maa for running a business disguised as religion and misleading people.
Despite repeated attempts by IANS, her official spokespersons did not comment on the developments and did not respond to messages.
Police are probing the matter and will take a decision on it subsequently, an official told media persons.
Radhe Maa claims to be a self-confessed fan of actor and former adult movie star Sunny Leone. Her pictures in short dresses, gyrating to Bollywood tunes with her devotees during satsangs (religious discourses) have gone viral on the social media networks.
