In a shocking incident, Sugney Swami aka Neelkanth Patel of the Swaminarayan sect of Haridham Sokhada of Gujarat, has been accused of rape by a woman in Canada. Notably, following this accusation, Swami sacrificed his saffron attire and disappeared with his family.
Swami is the saint of Sokhada Haridham, situated near Vadodara. A 30-year-old woman has accused of him of rape when he was at a temple in Toronto. But even before the woman could have filed a complaint against Swami to the Toronto Police, Swami returned to India from Canada. Soon after he fled with his family.
“This is true. Sugreya Swami had spent a night with me in temple. Swami also directed me the way to reach the temple and I have that messages as well. I have the date and time of the messages too. He also sent me photos of his place. And we had this conversation over the Tango chat app. This is the truth and the incident did occur in reality,” said the victim.
