Ashram owner Sexually Abuse

Muzaffarnagar (UP), July 12 : Children at an ashram in Shukratal, in Muzaffarnagar district, have said that the ashram owner, known as ‘Maharaj’, would force them to drink alcohol saying it was a “Coronavirus medicine”.

The owner of Godiya Math Ashram, Swami Bhakti Bhushan a.k.a Maharaj, was arrested, late on Thursday night after a complaint was filed by child helpline against him.

Ten young boys, who were allegedly sexually harassed, thrashed and forced to work as labourers, were also rescued from the ashram, three days go.

An FIR was also lodged on Thursday against the ashram owner under IPC section 377 (unnatural offences) and under various sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

The children rescued from Godiya Math Ashram were aged between seven and 16 and hail from the states of Tripura, Mizoram and Assam. The children were rescued by a team of state child care helpline and police on Tuesday after a tip-off.

The children had been sent to the ashram by trusting parents with limited means, in hope of giving them a good education.

“Maharaj would make us drink ‘Corona virus medicine’. Then he would get naked and lie down, show us dirty films and do bad things to us,” a 10-year-old from Mizoram said in a statement to the Child Welfare Committee.

The boy was among 10 rescued earlier this week after a tip-off from a whistle-blower who had been evicted for objecting to the sexual abuse.

Medical examination confirmed four of them had been sexually assaulted.

Muzaffarnagar SSP Abhishek Yadav said: “The ‘Maharaj’ is a resident of Sisauli village. He set up the ashram 12 years ago. He has no prior record. Locals said he had amassed donations in his previous stint as a godman in Chandigarh, which he used to set up his ashram here. The children had been engaged in the construction of the grand two storeyed ashram building.”

The Maharaj, meanwhile, told local reporters that the allegations were fake and part of a conspiracy by locals who were angry that a large piece of land had been donated to the ashram.

He said, “We have CCTV cameras on the premises that can be scanned. The children had been living here for a long time but now locals have told them to say all this as some people are creating trouble after the ashram was donated a piece of land.”

suicide

Lakhimpur (Uttar Pradesh), July 12 : Unable to reconcile to the demise of their mother, three siblings — two men and one woman — ended their lives in a suicide pact.

The incident happened on Saturday.

The bodies of the three were found hanging in the dining room when the police broke open the door. Their father had found the door locked when he came home and then informed the police.

One of them was a former school teacher and another an ex-employee of a private company.

The siblings had quit their jobs after their mother’s death.

According to police, a suicide note found on the bodies said the siblings were “unable to bear the loss of their mother”. The two brothers, including one who was disabled, and their sister allegedly took their own lives when their father — a retired engineer of the agriculture department — was not at home.

The father, Aditya Prakash Awasthi, 60, told police his wife had died of illness in September last year. Since then, his three children Preeti, 25, Gagan, 35 and Pawan, 30, were disturbed.

While Pawan had been employed in a private company in Lucknow, Preeti was working as a school teacher.

“They quit their jobs after my wife passed away. I apparently could not fill the void left by her death as all my children were very close to her,” said Awasthi.

SHO Kotwali police station Ajay Mishra said that neighbours told police that the siblings had stopped socializing after their mother passed away and kept to themselves. “It appears to be a case of suicide and a suicide note was also found. Bodies have been sent for autopsy,” he said.
