A self-styled godman allegedly molested a 15-year-old girl in a temple in south Delhi's Fatehpur Beri, police said today.
The incident took place on August 17 when a woman along with her niece and son visited the temple. Since her son was ill, she took him to the self-styled godman, Nabbe Bhagat (42), to get his illness cured, a police officer said.
The woman alleged that her niece was molested by the godman who also threatened to kill her, Deputy Commissioner of Police (south) Vijay Kumar said.
Based on a complaint filed by the girl's relative, a case was registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses (POCSO) Act on August 30, they said.
Subsequently, Nabbe Bhagat was arrested from his temple on Sunday, police said adding that further investigation is underway.
