The photograph, taken on September 28, shows SHO Sanjay Sharma standing next to the controversial "god-woman" with folded hands and a red "chunri" (stole) hanging around his neck while in uniform. An image that was circulating on the internet showed that Sharma had also offered his chair to Radhe Maa. The police personnel even gave a floral welcome to Radhe Ma and were later seen singing patriotic songs. She soon became a close associate of Radhe Maa and now the congregation knows her as Chhoti Maa. A police officer seen with his hands folded in reverence while the so-called spiritual leader is in his seat, is being investigated. An obscenity complaint filed against her says she allows devotees to kiss her. Around 15 people were accompanying her. All the police officers were sent to district lines which infers that they will not be given any position or responsibility till the inquiry is on. Meanwhile, Shahdara Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police has asked for a detailed report of the incident. She has a palatial Radhe Maa Bhawan in Mumbai, where she holds religious events every fortnight.

Further action will be taken after the final findings, said the officer, adding, "The message is loud and clear". Sharma is also seen wearing her "chunari" as mark of his gratitude towards the self-style god woman. Last month, she was given a huge blow by a Mumbai court that rejected her plea to remove her name as an accused in a case of dowry harassment filed by a city resident Niki Gupta in 2016. Radhe Maa was also accused of driving a family of seven to suicide in Gujarat.
