New Delhi, Mar 7 (ANI): Delhi Police is likely to invoke the Maharashtra Organised Crime Control Act against godman Shiv Murat Dwivedi, who was arrested for running a sex racket.

Dwivedi was arrested for allegedly running a sex racket from his ashram in Khanpur.

Delhi Police who have built a strong case against Dwivedi are likely to invoke clauses of Maharastra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against him so that he can't get away by paying just a fine if slapped with a charge under the Immoral Act.

"We have invoked the provisions of the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against Shiv Murat Dwivedi," DCP (South) HGS Dhaliwal said.

Investigaters believe that apart from running the sex racket, Dwivedi was also involved in many illegal activities.

"The sex racket was not his only business. He had invested in real estate and also use to lent money at high interest rates. He also got huge amounts of donations worth several crores from a Las Vegas based charitable organization," Dhaliwal added.

Half a dozen diaries were recovered from Dwivedi's possession which listed several names, including that of some politicians, police claimed.

Police believe that Dwivedi was in close association with some notorious pimps, including Sonu Punjaban and two others who were arrested in November 2008. (ANI)
