Delhi police has arrested another self-proclaimed baba from a temple in Fatehpur Beri, South Delhi. After the arrest of Virendra Dev Dixit and Dati Maharaj, this is another success grab for Delhi police. The 42-year-old man was known as Baba Nabbate Bhagat alias Nawab Singh who has been running his ashram for the last 10 years. He has been arrested in charges of molesting a 15-year-old girl in the temple.
The incident was highlighted after the teenager’s relatives registered a complaint on Sunday against the baba for sexually assaulting the girl. The police has registered an FIR against him and arrested him on the charges of protection of children (Po Box).
“The girl’s mother sent a complaint to the police through the post. The letter read that her daughter was ill whom she had taken to Baba’s ashram on August 14. When she reached ashram, the baba asked her to buy some puja materials from the market and asked her to leave her daughter there with him in the temple. When she came back from the market, her daughter was sitting in the lap of Baba and he was touching her wrongly. At mother’s objection Baba threatened her of the consequences. Later the woman sent a complaint to the police,” said the district Commissioner of Police.
