Radhe Maa's trishul troubles: Court orders FIR for carrying it on a flight

Mumbai: A magistrate in Mumbai on Wednesday ordered police to lodge an FIR under the Arms Act against self-styled godwoman Sukhwinder Kaur alias Radhe Maa for carrying a sharp 'trishul' (trident) on a flight last year.

The Andheri metropolitan magistrate's order followed a complaint by Right to Information (RTI) activist Asad Patel a year ago against Radhe Maa for entering the domestic and international airport premises in August 2015 carrying the trishul, where it is banned under law.

"Though I wrote to various authorities in the matter, including police and airport officials, they took no cognizance of the matter. On 13 August, 2015, I sent legal notice to all concerned parties and then filed a complaint with the magistrate's court which issued the directions today (Wednesday)," Patel told IANS.

Patel said a trident, which was dangerous and could cause harm to passengers, was among many other such sharp items banned by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security.

However, since Radhe Maa claims to be a godwoman, she was not restrained by the airport security staff from carrying it with her on the flight operated by a private airlines.

An official of the airport police station said they would initiate action in the matter after receiving the court order.

The controversial godwoman was earlier accused in a dowry-abetment case by a Mumbai housewife, Nikki Gupta, and later television actress Dolly Bindra had filed a criminal case of alleged threats and sexual harassment against her.
