Guwahati: The Assam police on Thursday said that they have arrested the self-styled godman, who was claiming to have blessing of “Lord Vishnu” to resolve the problem of personal life by his “chamatkari chumban” meaning miraculous kiss, from a remote village of central Assam’s Morigaon district.

The police said that they have arrested Ram Prakash Chauhan who was attracting crowds since last three months in his village Bhoraltup by claiming to have supernatural powers to solve physical and psychological problems of women, including marital discord. “We arrested him after receiving complaints that he was hugging and kissing women in the name of therapy,” said officer-in-charge of the Morigaon police station.

 

The police also arrested his mother for her involvement in spreading the news of her son’s “powers”.

Pointing out that the godman had also set up a temple outside his residence, the police admitted that Chauhan had become very popular in that area within few weeks time as magical healer.

However, police came to know about the incident more after few local TV channels flashed the video of Chauhan kissing women.

It is significant that magical healers are synonymous with Morigaon district, where the literacy is lower than in most of the other 32 districts of Assam.
