Umerkote: A self-styled godman from Odisha was arrested on Monday by the Chhattisgarh police for purportedly molesting a minor girl.
The accused has been recognized as 28-year-old Buduram Andkari, a resident of Jhotiapara town in Odisha’s Nabarangpur locale. As indicated by reports, Buduram Andkari used to attract many followers from the territory of Chhattisgarh. He professed to have the presence of lord Hanuman in his body and individuals visited him to seek blessings and treatment.
On September 19, a couple from Chhattisgarh moved toward the accused with their minor little girl for treatment. They later left after seeking treatment, the report said.
A couple of days after the fact, Buduram Andkari appeared very close to home and requested to meet the girl once more. On the pretext of healing her, the man allegedly locked her inside a room and sexually assaulted her, the news report said.
The girl opened up to her after the godman left the house. They filed a case with the Bishrampur police of Chhattisgarh and a group driven by overseer Ravi Shankar arrived at Nabarangpur and caught the accused.
Buderim Andkari was shipped off to prison after his bail application was dismissed by the court. He was reserved under the POCSO Act.
