Last year, Hindu holy man Baba Shailender Puri, whose real name is Sanjay Kherwar, kidnapped and raped an underage girl who visited his house of worship in Barara, India. A local court just convicted him to 10 years in jail.
It wasn’t the first time the Baba (Father) was ordered behind bars. He’d already been sentenced to a life term in a murder case in Kanpur, but escaped from police custody and started a new life under an assumed name.
Kherwar used to organize religious functions at Shiv Mandir, a Hindu temple in Barara.
