New Delhi, Aug 20: Self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa who has been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons, made yet another surprising claim on Wednesday. Radhe Maa's revelation came to fore after she was questioned by the Mumbai police in connection with a dowry harassment case.
Reportedly, godwoman unveiled a veil of secrecy over 'daddy', a mysterious man who had become a big puzzle for the Mumbai police. Radhe Maa told police that 'daddy' is her husband.
A police official was quoted by TOI as saying, "In statements of the victim, Niki Gupta, and her family, the name "Daddy" came up repeatedly. We asked Radhe Maa who this man was and where he lives.
She replied that he is her husband and stays with her, shunting between Punjab and Mumbai".
Police which asked total 23 questions in 30 minutes, also enquired whether she along with 'daddy' incited complainant for dowry. Radhe Maa replied in the negative.
Giving more details about what all happened on Wednesday when she was grilled at Kandivali Police station, senior inspector Mukund Pawar said, "Maa was summoned by us with regard to the domestic violence case and dowry harassment case".
She appeared at 12.15 PM and as many as 23 questions were asked in connection with the case during 30-minutes quizzing. Maa denied all the allegations against her, he said.
Other questions like -- whether she demanded any expensive cosmetics, asked for gold or money from the complainant and how many properties does she possess -- were also asked to her.
According to police, godwoman claimed that she does not possess any property and that she resides at her devotees' place.
On August 14, Radhe Maa was questioned for over four hours by police in connection with a dowry harassment case during which she denied all allegations against her.
The Bombay High Court on the same day provided her temporary relief by granting interim pre-arrest bail. Radhe Maa is accused by a 32-year-old woman of instigating her in-laws, who are the self-styled godwoman's followers, to demand dowry.
Meanwhile, other accused, whose statement has already been recorded in the case, can again be quizzed, police said.
