Prime News, National (Parbhani, Maharashtra), July 24:- A self-proclaimed godman was arrested in Maharashtra for allegedly making his male followers engage in unnatural sexual acts with each other, police said on Monday.
Asif Noori (38) was arrested from a neighbouring district and brought here last night, Parbhani Superintendent of Police Dilip Zalake said.
“We received a complaint on Friday from a few citizens after video and audio clips of him allegedly forcing male followers into unnatural sex were circulated on social media,” he said.
Unsuspecting victims from different parts of the state used to seek Noori’s help in solving their personal problems. However, the self-styled godman made them indulge in unnatural sex with each other for vicarious pleasure, said Ashok Ghorband, Senior Inspector of Kotwali here.
Noori was staying in a madrasa at Darga Road here in the Marathwada region of the state.
As the madrasa was allegedly used for the act, an offence under IPC section 295 (defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class) will be registered against Noori, he said. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
