VASCO: The Vasco police on Thursday evening booked a self-styled godman from Kundapur in Karnataka on charges of raping a 19-year-old girl from Vasco. The Vasco police have left for Karnataka to arrest the accused godman.

According to Vasco police, the victim from Mangor-hill, Vasco lodged a complaint that on August 23, one Santosh Kumbhar, a resident of Nippani, Maharashtra took her in his car on the pretext of taking her to her native place at Azra in Maharashtra. 

She alleged that the accused made her drink a soft drink containing some stupefying drug and later took her to an unknown house close to Mapusa, where the accused godman, calling himself Shri Shri Ravi Shankar, along with one Nikhil alias Bunty Chavan resident of Bogmalo were present. 

Both Santosh and Nikhil went out of the house at the behest of the godman, who allegedly sexually assaulted her. The complaint by the victim further alleged that the self-styled godman  then threatened her with dire consequences, if she disclosed the incident to anyone.

Vasco Police have registered an offence under sections 376, 377, 328, 506(II) read with section 34 of IPC. Further investigating the case is in progress under the guidance of PI Nolasco Raposo.
