The Pastor ran an 18-year-old Ashirwad Prayer Centre in Vasai that had shut down in February over allegations of black magic.
The centre was shut down after rationalist Narendra Dabholkar’s Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (MANS) filed a police case under the Blackmagic Act against the prayer centre.
Martin, who was the main accused in the case, had obtained an anticipatory bail in the case. The centre re-opened in April.
