Controversial self-styled godman & contestant of Bigg Boss 10 Swami Om was on Wednesday arrested in a case filed by his brother who had accused him of stealing bicycles along with some documents from his shop nine years ago, police said.
This case also came in limelight when Swami Om was in Bigg Boss house. He had an emergency exit to appear in the court but was back in the show after that.
Vinodanand Jha, also known as Swami Om, was declared a proclaimed offender by the Saket Court in Delhi last year in the case, the police said.
In November 2008, an FIR was registered at Lodhi Colony police station against him on a complaint by his younger brother Pramod Jha.
Pramod had accused him of breaking the lock of his bicycle shop in Lodhi Colony along with three men and stealing 11 bicycles, expensive spare parts, sale deed of the house and important documents, a police officer said.
Last year, a non-bailable warrant was issued against him by the Saket court which subsequently declared him a proclaimed offender in the case, the officer said.
The godman was hiding in a house in northeast Delhi’s Bhajanpura and was arrested by a joint team of Lodhi Colony police station and Inter-State Cell of Crime Branch, the officer added.
Swami Om has been one of the most controversial contestant in Colors TV show Bigg Boss’ history. He was thrown out of the show after he splashed his pee on Bani J and Rohan Mehra.
