Salt Lake: A report was registered against Days self proclaimed spiritual guru Virendra Dev Dixit who allegedly confined hundreds of girls, drugged and raped them for years at his Delhi and UP Ashrams.
The Bidhannagar East police station authorities conducted a raid at his Adhyatmik Ishiwarya Vishwavidyala ashram at Salt Lake’s CL 249 on Saturday. And finally sealed the Ashram.
According to one of the FIRs lodged at the Bidhannagar East police station, a petition filed by a woman from Contai in East Midnapore some time back claimed that in 1984. In 1992-93, she joined another institute called Adhyatmik Ishiwarya Viswavidyalaya at CL 249, where the founder of the institute allegedly forcefully co-habited with her.
The complaint mentions that many poor women became victims of merciless torture in the same manner at the institute under the name of spiritual education.
Fifteen women aged between 25 and 60 were rescued from the house, and a woman and two men were detained for questioning. The families of the rescued women are being contacted and based on their response, the women would either be sent to home or taken to a protection house. Dixit had visited the Salt Lake ashram last year.
