Police will record the statement of self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa in connection with a dowry harassment case only after recording the statements of other accused against whom summons was issued today.
Summons was issued against six persons, excluding Radhe Maa, who are accused in the case, a senior police officer said.
Pointing out that summons was not served on the godwoman, senior inspector of Borivali police station, Mukund Pawar said, “We have not issued any summons or have not initiated any kind of police procedure regarding the godwoman.”
“Once the statements of the six accused are recorded by police, the police will call Maa for (recording of) her statement,” he said, adding that statement of the six accused will be recorded from Monday.
The summons was issued after police registered an FIR against Radhe Maa and others earlier this week, including in-laws of the 32-year-old complainant who has accused them of “mental and physical harassment for dowry”.
In her complaint, the woman has accused Radhe Maa of instigating her in-laws, who are her followers for many years, in demanding dowry from her.
