Rajasthan’s falahari baba arrested on charges of rape
Alwar: Rajasthan’s famed ‘Falahari Baba’, who has been charged with raping a 21-year-old woman at his ashram, has been arrested this afternoon.
The self-styled Godman had checked himself into a private hospital in Alwar earlier this week over ‘high blood pressure.’
The police got a medical examination conducted on him at a government hospital in Alwar where his sugar and blood pressure were found to be normal.
Kaushlendra Prapannacharya Falahari Maharaj (70) is dubbed “Falahari” because of his reported fruits-only diet.
The woman, whose parents have been followers of Falahari Baba for years, has alleged that she was assaulted at his lavish ashram in Rajasthan’s Alwar on August 7. She was allegedly told that the Baba couldn’t meet anyone during an “eclipse” and asked to stay the night. The woman has told the police that the Baba called her at night to his room and assaulted her.
Gurmeet Singh was facing rape charges and is now serving a 20-year jail term for raping two followers.
