Bageshwar Dham chief Dhirendra Krishna Shastri

Bageshwar Dham controversy: Days after an anti-superstition crusader lodged a grievance towards self-styled godman and Bageshwar Dham chief Dhirendra Krishna Shastri for allegedly selling superstitious actions in his public programmes in Nagpur, the town police on Wednesday gave a “clear chit” to the latter.

Speaking to PTI, Nagpur Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar stated that in an inquiry into the grievance and the examination of “proof” submitted by complainant Shyam Manav, founding father of ‘Akhil Bharatiya Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti’, nothing was discovered that might appeal to motion below the Black Magic Act.

Manav had lodged the grievance on January 8, stating that Dhirendra Krishna Shastri performed ‘Shree Ram Katha’ occasion in Nagpur from January 5 to 13, throughout which he held ‘Divya Darbar’ and ‘Pret Darbar’ programmes that promoted superstition.

In his grievance, Manav demanded motion below the Maharashtra Prevention and Eradication of Human Sacrifice and different Inhuman, Evil and Aghori Practices and Black Magic Act, 2013 and the Medicine and Magic Cures (Objectionable Ads) Act, 1954.

Manav had challenged the self-godman

On January 9, Manav addressed a press convention, difficult the godman to show his energy ‘Divya Shakti’ (divine energy) and win a Rs 30 lakh money reward.


Shastri is the top priest of Bageshwar Dham in Gada village within the Chhatarpur district of Madhya Pradesh.

Nagpur CP Amitesh Kumar stated, “Primarily based on the grievance lodged towards Bageshwar Maharaj by Manav and a video submitted by him as proof, police performed an inquiry into the matter. Nevertheless, it was discovered that the programme held by Maharaj in Nagpur doesn’t appeal to motion below any of those legal guidelines.”

Within the video, Bageshwar Maharaj could possibly be seen reciting some traces from Hanuman Chalisa, like ‘Bhoot pishach nikat nahi aave’, which isn’t a black magic apply, the police commissioner stated.

“We have now issued a letter to Manav stating no offence could possibly be registered towards Bageshwar Maharaj,” he stated.
