Basti Superintendent of Police, Sankalp Sharma said an FIR has been lodged against the accused and that legal proceedings are being followed.

One of the victims claiming to be from Chhattisgarh, shared the ordeal she went through at the ashram. She said she came to the ashram in 2008 at the age of 12.

"I was naive and didn't know what was being done with me, When I refused to do anything, I was raped by three 'babas' here. I was kept captive, beaten up and repeatedly raped," she said.

The victim also claimed that the godman had several ashrams all over India.
