A self-proclaimed fake godman was arrested for sexually exploiting female devotees in Morigaon region of Assam.
Known as ‘kissing baba’ in the area, Ram Prakash Chouhan was apprehended after police learnt that he used to hug and kiss women devotees, who would come to him with some problems, according to Time8 report.
Chouhan used to reportedly work from a “temple” in the district’s Bhoraltup village. The self-styled godman claimed that he had the powers of Lord Vishnu and that his kiss can cure any physical illness, marital issues or other problems, the report added.
He had been doing this for over three months and was quite popular among the people. Chouhan has now been arrested by Morigaon police on charges of fake propaganda and sexually exploiting women. Chouhan’s mother has also been detained for interrogation.
This is not the first time that a self-proclaimed godman has been accused or arrested on sexual exploitation charges. Popular personalities like Asaram Bapu, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and many others have been exposed in the past.
