A woman priest of a temple in Banaskantha of Northern Gujarat was arrested as a jeweler complained of her cheating him of Rs 5 crores. The police raided her house in Palanpur and found Rs 1.25 crores in new Rs 2,000 currency notes and gold bars of 2.4 kilos. She was arrested and later released on bail. The gold bars recovered were all of 100 grams each.
The police also recovered more than 2 dozen bottles of liquor from her residence. The jeweller had complained that she bought the gold bars from him, but did not make the payment that she was supposed to do for them. After delivering the bars of gold, the Sadhavi refused to make the payment even after several reminders that were sent to her.
