“During our raid in Palanpur today, we have recovered Rs 1.25 crore in cash, which was in Rs 2,000 notes, and 24 gold bars, each of 100 grams. Sadhvi was also present at her house during the raid. We have arrested her in a case of cheating and seized the cash and 2.4 Kg gold,” the SP said.
Earlier yesterday, a Palanpur-based jeweller Pritesh Shah had lodged a complaint of cheating against Sadhvi and two others, alleging that the trio had taken Rs 5 crore from him by promising to give him gold at a cheaper rate.
“When the trio did not kept their promise, Shah realised about the cheating and lodged an FIR. Based on a tip off, we raided a house and recovered cash and gold from Sadhvi, who was arrested from the spot,� the SP said.
“We will inform the Income Tax department to conduct further probe about the source of the cash and gold recovered from her,� he added.
Sadhvi Jayshree Giri as she is known, heads the trust that runs a temple in Banaskantha district.
This is not the first time when Sadhvi has been taken under police custody. Earlier also, she was questioned in the death case of her guru (spiritual leader) and in other fraud cases.
In December, the sadhvi had courted a controversy when she was filmed throwing 2000-rupee bills worth one crore at singers at a public event.
