They heard a lot about his “chamatkar”.
The miracle of curing COVID-19 just by offering special prayers.
Their family was concerned when they started showing symptoms for COVID-19 and were pushed towards trying his miraculous prayers.
He took somewhere around Rupees 12,000 to 30,000 for the chants he would give them.
They tried his miracle for a few days and it didn’t work.
They were already pressured due to the infection of COVID-19 plus now they had lost a huge sum of money.
They decided to get the infected people hospitalized and get the fraud to jail.
They went to the police and lodged an official complaint.
The police officials raided his secret place and arrested the ‘corona baba’ and his sidekick.
They have been charged for cheating and also booked under relevant sections of the Epidemic Act.
The police got to know that he has been giving out this cure for seasonal fever for over 4 years.
His preachings were also available on local WhatsApp groups.
Since the pandemic, he was exploiting the fear in the mind of the common and innocent people.
The police has appealed to the public to be vigilant and not to believe any such claims and to approach a doctor if they have any symptoms.
He is now behind the bars and atleast one of such frauds will go through trials.
Corona can be cured by science and not prayers and miracles.
