A court here has granted anticipatory bail to former ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant and self-proclaimed godman Swami Om, who was accused of molesting and threating a woman, court sources said on Thursday.
Special Judge Sanjay Garg on Tuesday allowed the anticipatory bail plea of Swami Om and asked him to furnish a personal bond of Rs 25,000.
Claiming innocence, Swami Om’s counsel A.P. Singh told the court that he was falsely implicated.
“There are stated to be four cases pending against the applicant (Swami Om) but no one falls under the category of sexual abuse. In view of these circumstances, this applicant deserves parity with co-accused Santosh Anand who is lying admitted to anticipatory bail by the High Court,” the judge said.
He assured the court that if granted anticipatory bail, Om would not misuse his liberty.
In her complaint to Indraprastha Estate police station, the woman had accused Swami Om and Santoshanand of wrongful restraint and abusive behaviour, and committing objectionable acts.
The woman complained that the accused tore her clothes on February 7.
