Usually, when you see a 'tantrik can help' poster in a local train, you exercise your better judgment. But this 30-year-old Vasai woman resorted to take the aid of one Govdhan Mangal Ahir (45), who claimed he could rid one of problems "within minutes", to handle her domestic dispute and was sexually assaulted by him on several occasions. She is now five months pregnant. On Wednesday, she approached the Manikpur police, who then arrested the 'baba' on the charge of rape.

According to the police, soon after her marriage, the woman started having fights with her husband, so much so that she had left him and gone back to her parents' home in Vasai. In the meantime, her husband had also relocated to his native village in Solapur district. However, she later wanted to resolve the conflict and get back together with him, for which she consulted Ahir.
