Hours after self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa made headlines for sitting on the chair of Delhi police SHO, she was the centre of another controversy as a video of her dancing with the policemen went viral on the social media platforms.

Sanjay Sharma, the SHO on whose chair Radhe Maa was seen sitting, has been transferred along with five other policemen seen capitulating before he godwoman in the video to the district lines, said police sources.

Despite being blacklisted by Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP) - an apex body of Hindu saints - and accused in several cases, the flamboyant Radhe Maa got a special treatment at Vivek Vihar Police Station in East Delhi. He is seen wearing a big grin and a bright red and gold scarf, incongruous with his khaki uniform but matching Radhe Maa's staple look. She soon became a close associate of Radhe Maa and now the congregation knows her as Chhoti Maa.

PM Modi posted a short video as tribute to the "Father of the Nation" which features PM himself invoking Mahatma Gandhi's quotes. The current generation must draw inspiration from his ideals for a better India , Rajender Reddy noted.


A devotee of the godwoman, who was accompanying her on that day, claimed that the SHO had asked her to stand from the chair when she sat down on it. "Excuse being given that Radhe Maa was in the police station for security concern holds no ground", Delhi BJP Media in-charge Praveen Shankar Kapoor said. Since it was located right behind my chair she sat on my chair without asking after she came out of the toilet.

He was referring to the video of the police officials singing alongside Radhe Maa. "An inquiry has been initiated against the SHO and five police personnel".

Deputy Commissioner of Police Nupur Prasad told IANS that an inquiry had been ordered into the "unprofessional conduct" of Station House Officer Sanjay Sharma of Vivek Vihar police station. Another case was filed by the actress Dolly Bindra alleging sexual harassment against the religious leader.
