The Dev Dixit story continues on with a call for him to "Appear before CBI if you have nothing to hide: Delhi High Court to self-styled godman Virender Dev Dixit", after his ashram's lawyer alleged that Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal was spreading fake propaganda about their institution.

The Delhi Commission for Women has also asked Interpol to issue a "Blue Notice" to locate Dixit who is thought to be in Nepal. The court asked the CBI to continue with its efforts and listed the matter for further hearing on July 27, at which members from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS) will report back with a review the mental and physical condition of the alleged victims. The CBI has been ordered to probe the matter by setting up a special investigation team (SIT) to take charge of all records and documents pertaining to the case.

An Interpol Blue Notice is a relatively low level call for foreign police forces to collect additional information about a person’s identity, location or activities. Unlike more serious Red and Yellow notices, it can be issued prior to criminal charges being filed.

No updates in the press as to the adult female PBK followers being held against will in various locations.
Swati Maliwal wrote:"Baba Dixit is a coward, fraud and hypocrite. He has no respect for law and even after issuing warrants and orders from court, he is not appearing in the court."

In this case, with no actually charges being made and supported by evidence, and plenty of evidence to the contrary being present, eg regarding the ages of the women, it actually does seem that that Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal, and the NGO called the "Foundation for Social Empowerment" that brought the charges, are spreading false propaganda about the PBK institution, and abusing the rights of the women involved.

The saga rolls on. Be warned, the speed of the India legal system is such that this may take decades.

I note that the women forcibly taken from the PBK ashrams against their will are now being subjected to investigation by the AIIMS and IHBAS, to inspect the conditions at the ashrams and to ascertain the physical and mental health of its inmates.
    The IHBAS is the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences, formerly known as Hospital for Mental Diseases. It is a mental health and neurosciences research institute based in New Delhi, India.

    The AIIMS is the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences a group of autonomous public medical colleges of higher education.
The PBKs' lawyer has accused the Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal of spreading malicious propaganda about their institution.

It strikes me that most of the allegations about conditions at the PBKs centres could have been equally aimed at the BKs at various ocassions during their history ... if not still today ... and given Virendra Dev Dixit was previously falsely imprisoned for months, and badly treated while in there, it is no wonder he lacks faith in the legal system.
Blue corner notice issued against Dixit

The court was hearing a plea that self-proclaimed godman Virender Dev Dixit (right) had confined minors and women at the ‘spiritual university’ in Rohini. Court wants absconding self-proclaimed godman to appear before the probe agency

The Delhi High Court on Thursday questioned self-proclaimed godman Virender Dev Dixit, who allegedly confined girls and women at his Rohini ashram in the Capital, why he was in hiding since last December if he had done nothing wrong.

The CBI, which is investigating the case, told a Bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar that it has issued a blue corner notice to locate him through the Interpol.

“Why does your leader not appear before the CBI? He is absconding. Your leader is running, that too at an international level. What kind of example is he setting? Ask him to appear before the CBI. If you have nothing to hide, make your activities transparent,” the Bench remarked.

Allegation against DCW

The Bench’s observations came after the ashram’s lawyer alleged that the Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal was spreading propaganda about their institution.

Maliwal statement

“Mr. Dixit is a coward, fraud and hypocrite. He has no respect for the law and even after issuing warrants and orders from [the] court, he is not appearing in court,” Ms. Maliwal had said in a statement.

When the ashram’s lawyer claimed that their spirituality prohibits them from registering their group with any statutory body, the court said, “Your spirituality is also bound by the law. If it is not in harmony with the law prescribed, then you will have to face the consequences.”

Status report

The CBI, in its status report, said that the godman has fled to Nepal along with the wife of one of his followers and the woman’s husband has said that he has no knowledge about her whereabouts.

The agency also told the court that it has asked the Interpol to issue a blue corner notice to locate him.

It said women inmates needed prior permission from Mr. Dixit before even getting a pen to write to their family or dear ones.

‘Nominate experts’

The court also directed the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS) to nominate some experts to visit the ashram and inspect the conditions there to ascertain the physical and mental health of its inmates.

The court was hearing a petition by non-government organisation Foundation for Social Empowerment.

The NGO has alleged in the petition that several minors and women were being illegally confined at the “spiritual university” (Adhyatmik University) and were not allowed to meet their parents. The court had appointed a three-member panel, comprising Ms. Maliwal and advocates Nandita Rao and Ajay Verma, to inspect the Rohini ashram and its other branches in the Capital.

I have visited AIMS it is very similar in structure and function to the United States National Institutes of Health or NIH. Though the standards of the NIH are global gold standards for biomedical research, I am not sure about AIIMS. Almost every other year, a scientist from the US NIH wins the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine. Surely the doctors and scientists at AIIMS are usually top-notch. Most of the research on the human genome project was done at the NIH or affiliation with the NIH.

Mr. G,

That's a great question, even for our BK Sisters and Brothers. One of their answers can be as follows: He has an illness in his soul and it's his karmic accounts to clean up. No other entity can intervene, because it is his personal karmas.

A key note within BKism, of which PBKism is just a subset, is the rush of adherents to make excuses for their gurus and god spirits faults and failing ... one presumes to plug up the holes in their own 'faith bubble' and stop it from deflating. An expression of psychological denial, in other words.

It's never their fault, it's just a test ... a purification ... an evil reaction from impure non-BK individuals towards their purity.

Individual BKs within the system rise to positions of prominence based on their ability to come up with plausible answers and solutions, one of which is, as you say, the beloved "purification" or karmic clearance.

Why is the "Permanent Medium of God" [PMOG] suffering such persecution? It cannot just be that he did something really dumb.

Should God fear a Indian courthouse? Sort of goes against the Draupadi story, doesn't it?

Would God do a runner from the Indian Police and Court ... well, probably 'yes' actually.

Whatever Virendra Dev Dixit has done, I don't think this trial by tabloid press is right, and certainly not most helpful for the women, nor helping in their exiting of the cult.

I hear the Indian legal system is notorious slow, so expect this to drag on for years.
