Last month, she was given a huge blow by a Mumbai court that rejected her plea to remove her name as an accused in a case of dowry harassment filed by a city resident Niki Gupta in 2016. Radhe Maa was also accused of obscenity by a lawyer on the basis of videos showing her being lifted by followers while dancing to Bollywood songs.
Radhe Maa has a temple to her name located about 2 km from the ashram of her guru at Mukerian. She also has a Radhe Maa Bhawan in Borivali where she holds various religious events every fortnight drawing hundreds of wealthy followers.
