The Delhi High Court has rejected the anticipatory bail plea of a yoga teacher, who is facing charges of sexually harassing a minor girl, noting that there was at least three complaints against him where women have made allegations of abusive and inappropriate conduct.
Justice Prathiba M. Singh also took into account the fact that investigation has not yet concluded and the man “does have the propensity to influence the investigation”.
The case relates to the complaint of a 17-year-old girl who had alleged that on May 14, while she was studying in her house, Swami Ganeshanand had clicked four to five photographs of her and made obscene gestures towards her.
The complainant had further alleged that Mr. Ganeshanand had pointed towards her and abused her in filthy language. While the incident was not reported immediately, on June 14 the complainant and her mother reported the incident and an FIR was registered.
