A new complaint was also filed at the suburban Borivali police station on Wednesday against her alleging her involvement in promoting superstition. Advocate Ashok Rajput who filed the complaint has demanded that Radhe Maa should be booked under the stringent Anti-Superstition Law not only for spreading superstition but also for practising "indecent behaviour".
