MUMBAI: Self-proclaimed god-woman Radhe Maa has been caught in a controversy after a woman named her in a case of dowry harassment on Thursday.
According to a leading English daily, Niki Gupta, in her complaint to the Kandivali police, has alleged that her in laws harassed her for dowry and assaulted her at the behest of Radhe Maa. Naming seven members of her husband’s family in the complaint, including her husband, mother-in-law and father-in-law, the woman said she was also asked to do menial jobs at Radhe Maa’s house.
