No bail for bobbitised Kerala godman

No bail for bobbitised Kerala godman”

A young woman in Kerala will have to take a lie detector test along with brain mapping, which is the equivalent of fingerprinting the mind, a court ruled today, after she recanted earlier statements and said she had neither been raped by a self-declared godman nor chopped off his genitals in revenge.

The woman had initially told the police that she cut off the godman's genitals when he made sexual advances towards her.

The swami was unlikely to get bail soon for his offences, and hence a "criminal conspiracy" was hatched by "some activists of the Sangh Parivar" along with an "efficient criminal lawyer", the petition says.

Meanwhile, the 54-year-old godman is now in judicial custody till July 1 and his bail petition that came up Monday at the trial court was posted for Tuesday.

But the swami told doctors that he himself had tried to sever his penis.

But the case has taken several twists and turns.

The woman in her complaint had stated that the accused has been known to her family for the past few years and has been harassing her since she was a minor.

The law student petitioned the court stating that she had lost faith in the police and demanded a CBI inquiry into the episode that unfolded at her house in the capital early May 21.

The court gave the order as per the request of the police, as the girl keeps changing her statements, and has asked the girl to respond with her willingness to undergo the test either by directly appearing before the court or through a lawyer on June 26.

Sources said that Ayyappa Das filed a habeas corpus petition in the high court.

The police had sought the test after the woman claimed that police have been fabricating stories about the case. Find us on Facebook too!
