CBI files status report in Daati Maharaj rape case


New Delhi, Oct 30: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday filed a status report in a rape case against self-styled godman Daati Maharaj in the Delhi High Court.

The probe agency filed the reply in a sealed cover before a division bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon.

The court has fixed November 2 for hearing.

The CBI took over the investigation and filed the case against Maharaj on charges of raping and having unnatural sex with an inmate of his ashram.

Daati Maharaj has been named in a CBI FIR along with three associates Ashok, Arjun and Anil — all known by their first names — for raping and having unnatural sex with a disciple at his Ashram in Fatehpur Beri in south Delhi two years ago.

Because of fear and social stigma, she didn’t file a complaint earlier as she felt intimidated by the self-styled godman.

The victim registered the case at Fatehpur Beri police station on Jun 10 this year.
