Kalicharan Maharaj had reportedly delivered a derogatory speech against Mahatama Gandhi in the ‘Dharam Sansad’ event in Raipur on December 25-26.

The arrest was made after four days of the registration of the First Information Report (FIR) against Kalicharan Maharaj. After being arrested from MP state, he was brought to Chhattisgarh by the police officials for producing him before the court.

According to the Indian media reports, three separate police teams were sent to Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra to arrest him. Police officials found him 25 km from Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh where he had taken a rented room near Bageshwar Dham.

It is not the first case against Kalicharan Maharaj as he was booked in another case of hate speech during the ‘Shivpratap Din’ event held in Pune on December 19. Another hate speech case was registered against him in Maharastra’s Akola district.
