Mumbai: Police today arrested Shifu Sunkriti cult group’s founder Sunil Kulkarni in connection with alleged human trafficking and obscenity on social media. Kulkarni was arrested by Malad police in the wee hours today.
He will be produced in a court later in the day, a senior official of the Mumbai crime branch said. The Bombay High Court had yesterday asked the city police to lodge an FIR against Kulkarni.
The high court gave the directions while hearing a plea by a city couple alleging that their two daughters, aged 23 and 21, were ensnared by the cult group Shifu Sunkriti, which operated on social media, and its founder Kulkarni.
