Self-styled god-woman Radhe Maa received a special welcome at an east Delhi Police Station on Thursday.

Visuals have surfaced showing the controversial god-woman sitting on an SHO's chair at a police station and singing and swaying with policemen at a Ram Leela function, forcing an embarrassed Delhi Police to order an inquiry into the incident.

A photograph purportedly taken at the Vivek Vihar police station shows Station House Officer Sanjay Sharma, draped in a red and gold shawl worn by Hindu devotees, standing next to the god-woman with folded hands. The cops shown in the photograph have reportedly been suspended.

Twitterati were quick to react to the celebrity treatment received by Radhe Maa.

She also makes an appearance in a video recorded at a Ram Leela function at GTB Enclave where five police personnel from the police station there are seen singing patriotic songs as she sways to their tune.

Joint Commissioner of Police, Ravindra Yadav said an inquiry had been initiated against the SHO and five police personnel.

The five policemen in the video, which was uploaded on the god-woman's Facebook page, are assistant sub-inspectors Braj Bhushan and Radhe Krishan, head constable Pramod, and constables Hitesh and Ravinder, a senior police official said.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, an official said the SHO had claimed that Radhe Maa was on her way to a Ram Leela function and had stopped at the police station to use its washroom.

Sukhwinder Kaur alias Radhe Maa, who has attracted eyeballs for her glitzy pictures on social media, is at the centre of several controversies.

Kaur is facing charges under Section 298A based on a complaint by a 32-year-old woman who alleged that the god-woman influenced her in-laws to demand dowry. Earlier in September, a Mumbai court rejected her discharge application saying that she was directly connected to the case.

In a separate case in 2015, Mumbai-based lawyer Falguni Brahmbhatt had accused the 53-year-old god-woman of obscenity, mental harassment, fraud and cheating.
