Controversial self-styled Godwoman, Radhe Maa, was welcomed at a police station in east Delhi during the festival of Navratri. The Station House Officer of Vivek Vihar, Sunjoy Sharma, welcomed her and offered her his chair at the police station. A photograph also emerged on the social media in which Radhe Maa is seen sitting on his seat, while the SHO, with ‘chunri’ around his neck, is standing beside.
Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik ordered a probe into the matter and sent the SHO to the district line with immediate effect. Chief Spokesperson Dependra Pathak told The Indian Express that Sharma has been sent to district lines and a probe has been ordered. An additional DCP level officer will conduct the probe, he said.
Sources said Radhe Maa suddenly arrived at the police station and met other staff, who offered her a warm welcome on the midnight of September 28 and 29. A few of them sang patriotic songs with her. Sources said she remained at the police station for at least 15 minutes. She had come to attend a Ramlila near the police station.
After the inquiry was ordered on Thursday, senior officials collected the CCTV footage and DVR from the police station. Sources said a few more policemen, who were present during the event, may face departmental action.
