A legal case under the Dowry Prohibition Act has been filed against Radhe Maa by Nikki Gupta. Nikki also accused her husband and in-laws of harassing her for dowry.

The in-laws of the complainant are staunch believers of Radhe Maa. The complainant was quoted as saying, "My husband and in-laws used to say I had not got enough jewellery and cash from my parents."
