Alwar religious guru Falahari Maharaj held for raping disciple’s daughter
An Alwar-based self-styled religious guru, Swami Falahari Maharaj, was arrested on Saturday on charges of raping a disciple’s daughter last month. “After an FIR was lodged at Aravali Vihar police station (in Alwar) on September 20, the baba got him admitted in hospital, claiming he was unwell. The hospital discharged him today; subsequently we arrested him,” Alwar’s Additional Superintendent of Police Paras Jain said.
The complainant, a 21-year-old law student from Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh, said she had recently got an internship position and had gone to donate her first stipend — Rs 3,000 — to Falahari’s ashram on August 7, when the incident occurred.
