Chandigarh: Punjab and Haryana High Court have summoned the Kapurthala Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) for purposely not initiating action against self-styled God Woman Radhe Maa.
Acting on the contempt petition filed by the petitioner Surinder Mittal, Justice Nirmaljit Kaur of Punjab and Haryana HC has summoned the officer who is alleged of backing Sukhvinder Kaur, aka Radhe Maa.
Next hearing, in this case, is scheduled for December 18.
The latest development, in this case, came after the petitioner was seeking for an initiation of contempt proceedings against the respondent officer for alleged willful disobedience of an order passed by the HC on December 15, 2015.
The petitioner Mittal alleged that respondent officer was intentionally violating the HC order and thus liable for the Contempt of Courts Act.
In December 2015, Surinder Mittal has filed a case against Sukhvinder Kaur for posing as a reincarnation of Hindu Goddess and hurting his religious sentiments.
The petitioner Surinder Mittal said, “Radhe Maa repeatedly calls, and says I love you. I have submitted all the evidence to the police and they are yet to take any action.”
Even the CD of that conversation between the Radhe Maa and Mittal is given to police and they are delaying in calling her to record her voice said, Mittal.
His counsel KS Dadwal added that the allegation in the complaint amounts to cognigable offence, warranting an inquiry or registration of FIR.
The Bench had observed that the petitioner arguments towards the commission of offence, based on evidence are debatable.
“The CD of Radhe Maa’s Jagran is sent to a forensic lab for cross verification with the CD submitted by the petitioner and police should summon her for voice recording,” said Dadwal.
