Patna: Police in Patna on Sunday arrested one Chandrama Raj, a Christian pastor, for sexually assaulting two women after the victims filed a report with the Khajekalan Police station and an NGO dealing with such cases.

As reported, Raj allegedly molested one woman who had come to him to seek treatment for her inability to produce a child. Another victim accused him of sexually assaulting him when her family members brought her to him seeking treatment to free her 'from evil spirits'.

One of the victims had filed a written complaint with the Khajekalan police station on September 23 but the police failed to take any action against the pastor. It sprang into action only after Mahila Kalyan Samiti, an NGO dedicated to take up cases of atrocities and sexual assault against women, approached the police and asked them to look into the allegations against the priest.

A police officer of the women's police station told the reporters that during a preliminary investigation, police found the women's allegations to be credible prompting action against the pastor.

Archana Rai, Mahila Samiti secretary said that Chandrama Raj held routine mass at a rented building in Gurhatta in Patna City where he preached the gospel of Christ while also claiming super miracle power to treat people with physical and mental issues.
