New Kerala

[India News]: Ahmedabad, Feb 17 : Continuing its crack down on the Vadtal sect of the Swaminarayan temple, police today raided the premises of a senior priest in Anand district in connection with the sex scam, a Crime Branch official said.

"Raids were conducted at the premises where a top priest of the Swaminarayan Vadtal sect lives in Anand district. Some things, including objectional VCD's and video tapes have been seized," the official told PTI.

The raids were conducted in premises belonging to the top priest at Vadtal and Vidyanagar towns and it appears that a prima facie case can be made against the priest, the official said.

The crime branch had busted this case and made the arrests after getting complaints of several CDs doing the rounds in Anand and Junagadh district of priests of the Swaminarayan sect at Vadtal indulging in the obscene acts.
