Kendrapara, Aug 10:
Arrested Odisha godman Sarathi Baba was a sex pervert and used to watch footage of women bathing inside the bathroom of his lodging at his ashram, if evidence dug out by the Odisha Crime Branch police is anything to go by.
Sources in the Crime Branch said a number of CCTV cameras were installed at various points inside the ashram premises, including the 13 inside the ladies bathrooms in the 32-room lodge of the ashram. These CCTV cameras were apparently linked to the computer of the Baba who used to watch and enjoy the nude visuals of the women in the confines of his bedroom.
Some trusted leutenants of the Baba were aware of his surreptitious and clandestine activities.
All these CCTV recordings were stored in the hard disk of his computer so that he could watch them anytime he wanted.
Of the 13 ladies bathrooms, the Baba focussed particualrly on two bathrooms which were exclusively used by the women of his choice.
However, the Crime Branch team, during investigation have found that the hard disk has been removed from the computer.
While efforts are on to trace the missing hard disk, it is apprehended that there is a possibility of blackmailing of several women if the hard disk has been taken by one of the close aides of the Baba.
