On October 1, the police had filed a charge sheet in the case before the Saket Court mentioning the statement of the woman's sister, who had claimed that the victim was sleeping in her room when the alleged crime took place.

Daati Maharaj, who is accused of raping a disciple inside Shani Dham two years ago, was booked under Sections 376, 377, 354 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The victim had stated that she was allegedly raped at Gurukul Ashwasan in Rajasthan's Bal Gram, adding that she did not file a complaint earlier as she felt intimidated by the self-styled godman. (ANI)
