A 24-year-old woman has lodged a complaint against a self-styled spiritual healer in Delhi for allegedly raping her in the pretext of curing illness.

The complainant in her letter also said that she was not only raped by the spiritual leader inside his ashram but was also molested by his woman accomplice.

The accused along with his accomplice have gone absconding ever since a case has been filed against them at Janakpuri police station. Cops are carrying out raids at several locations catch the duo.
