The list of the fake godmen is continuing to increase day by day, and is actually a wakeup call for all those individuals who blindly believe these people in the name of God. Through some or the other deceptive ways these self-proclaimed messengers of god promise people of making their life better and then exploit them financially, mentally and physically as well. Gurmeet Singh was sent behind the bars after the charges that were proved against him. Radhee Ma was recently seen doing some cheap dance and that entire video goes viral. And now this Jain Baba who has been arrested for raping a 19 year old girl.
The accused 45 year old Shanti Sagar Maharaj who is of the Digambar sect, has now been accused of sexually assaulting a 19 year old girl who had come to seek his blessings along with her parents. According to the police the medical examination of the girl has confirmed that she has been raped. A native of Madhya Pradesh and currently living in Vadodara, this 19 year old girl along with her parents had accepted Shanti Sagar Maharaj as their guru.
On October 1st 2017 the girl along with her parents and brother had gone to seek his blessings, where the acharya then convinced them to stay back for the mantras. He then took the girl to the next room and pretending that he is performing some kind of a Pooja raped her. The girl after the entire incident was scared to report to the police but finally confined to her parents and a FIR was filed after 11 days.
On a Saturday when the news spread on all the news channels, the Jain Muni then took the vow of silence. He was taken to the police station for the questioning purpose and was formally arrested on the Saturday night. Thousand and lakhs of the community members came forward and gathered at the police station. We have filed an FIR based on the girl’s complaint. The medical report confirms the girl was raped, says the Police Commissioner of Surat Satish Sharma.
The leaders of the Shakal Digambar Jain Samaj, Advocate R G Shah, to this said that, according to the complaint the incident occurred around 9.30 to 10.30 pm. But my client does not entertain any one after 8.30 pm. Also why did the girl stay quiet for a longer period of time? Where was she all these days? This might even be a case of defaming the muni.
