Mumbai, Oct 14: A PIL in the Bombay High Court today sought a direction to the Centre and other authorities to take action against self-styled godwoman Sukhvinder Kaur alias Radhe Maa for carrying a trident (trishul) in her hand while boarding a flight by an airlines from Aurangabad to Mumbai on August 9.
The PIL, filed by social worker, Ramesh Joshi, claimed that Radhe Maa had flouted civil aviation rules by carrying trident in her hand.
The petition is slated to come up for hearing before Justices V M Kanade and Anuja Prabhudessai on October 16. The petition alleged that the police authorities and the Maharashtra Home Ministry had failed to register FIR against her despite complaints filed before them.
Carrying of trident in a flight is prohibited under civil aviation rules and allowing a person to carry this on an aircraft amounts to an offence, said the PIL.
