Rohini ashram case: CBI takes over probe against 'godman'

Rohini ashram case: CBI takes over probe against 'godman'

The baba is under scanner for alleged human trafficking activities.

The agency has formed a three-member special investigation team headed by a superintendent-level officer to probe these cases.

Terming as "extremely suspicious" the conduct of the founder of a north Delhi-based ashram, where girls were allegedly kept in illegal confinement, the Delhi High Court today directed the CBI to submit a report on his whereabouts.

Confirming the developments, CBI spokesperson said, "We have lodged three FIRs in the case and initiated investigation".

The agency has taken over these cases from Rohini police, which cracked down on the self-style godman last month, rescued dozens of captive girls, and filed two FIRs against him and one against an unknown person.

Carnival (CCL) Trading Down 0%
Zacks Investment Research lowered Carnival from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a research report on Friday, September 8th. Accern ranks coverage of publicly-traded companies on a scale of -1 to 1, with scores closest to one being the most favorable.

Delhi Women Commission chief Swati Maliwal later claimed that letters containing "explicit content" written to the female inmates by Dixit were also recovered during the raid.

"It appears that the baba is running a human trafficking racket".

During the hearing, the bench said it was aware that the entire organisation was run and managed by Dixit, and arguments to the contrary by the ashram's lawyer are "falsified" by information on the website as well as YouTube videos. By delaying the raids, baba is getting time to cover up his action.

The panel had informed the court that 100 girls and women were living in "animal-like conditions with no privacy even for bathing", adding that inmates seemed to be under the influence of drugs.

Scores of girls and women have been rescued from ashrams of Adhyatmik Vishwa Vidyalaya in parts of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh's Farrukhabad since December 20 when the Delhi High Court asked the CBI to inspect the institute's Rohini premises.
