Court fixes next hearing in Radhe Maa case for January 10
Jalandhar – Taking serious note on the part of SSP Kapurthala for Submitting a misleading affidavit and not registering an FIR against self-styled God woman Radhe Maa till date, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday placed the counter affidavit filed by the complainant in this case on record for next hearing. The next hearing of the case would be held on January 10, 2018. SSP Kapurthala Sandeep Sharma submitted an affidavit stating that they did not receive any order from the High Court for registering an FIR against Radhe Maa alias Babbo alias Sukhwinder Kaur. Phagwara-based complainant Surinder Mittal said that the court took a strong notice of misleading affidavit submitted by SSP Kapurthala in the court.“How can the SSP deny that he did not get the order, when it was issued in December 2015? We filed a counter affidavit and it was taken on record and a Civil Miscellaneous application was allowed today. The next hearing would take place on January 10, 2018,” he said. On September 5, the High Court has issued a notice to the SSP Kapurthala on a contempt petition filed by Mittal for not complying with the directions issued by the court to file an FIR against Radhe Maa. “Interestingly, SSP Kapurthala filed a reply in the court supported with an affidavit that the order passed by the high court was never received in the office of SSP Kapurthala. But the court Stated in the order that the notice was received by the Assistant Advocate General of Punjab and the copy of petition was given,” he said. Mittal said that it is very intriguing that how SSP Kapurthala could mention that no order was received in his office. Meanwhile, despite repeated attempts, SSP Kapurthala was not available for comments. It is pertinent to mention here that Radhe Maa was accused of bribing and threatening Mittal, after he raised voice against her for spreading obscenity and vulgarity. In August 2015, Mittal, a former president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) of Kapurthala and Jalandhar had informed the Kapurthala police that Radhe Maa had threatened him over the phone. However, Kapurthala police did not register an FIR against the Godwoman. Mittal said in December 2015, the high court has directed the Kapurthala police to register an FIR. The court has asked the police to conduct an inquiry if any cognizable offence was found and take action, else drop the proceeding, he said. Notably, Radhe Maa was married to Mohan Singh of Mukerian. At her ancestral house, she used to work as a tailor. A huge temple of Radhe Maa was also situated in Khanpur village in Mukerian, where people from far flung places come to pay obeisance. Earlier, Mittal had also claimed that Radhe Maa and her brother and father had killed her sister-in-law Balwinder Kaur in June 2002 and a case was registered at the Dorangla police station in Gurdaspur. All three of them were convicted in this case. Mittal had procured information under Right to Information (RTI) Act to help a Mumbai-based resident Nikki Gupta, who was being harassed by Radhe Maa. It was following this case that he received calls from Radhe Maa, her sister Rajinder Kaur alias Raji Massi, her servant Ritu Sareen alias Chotti Maa and her daughter-in-law Megha Singh, hence exposing her in this case.
