According to the same complaint filed by the woman, Narayan Sai had also sexually harassed her when she had gone for a interview at his ashram at Karol Bagh, back in 2013.

However, the matter went unreported as her channel's chief had advised her against it, the police told PTI. Reportedly, she provided the police with some photographs with respect to the case. 

According to Dharmendra Singh, SSP, Gautam Budh Nagar district police, the FIR was registered after a probe was conducted on the basis of the woman's complaint that was received 15 days ago.

While journalist Suresh Chavhanke has been booked under IPC sections related to rape, sexual assault, harrassment and criminal intimidation, Narayan Sai has been booked for repeated sexual assault.
