Baba Amarpuri was arrested after videos of him allegedly raping women surfaced online

A 60-year-old tantrik has been arrested in India for allegedly raping over 100 women and filming the incidents.

Haryana police arrested Baba Amarpuri, a chief priest at Balaknath temple in Fatehabad's Tohana, after videos of him, allegedly raping women, surfaced online.

The Times of India reported that the man used the clips to blackmail the women and rape them again.

According to the police, "suspicious articles" were seized from his house during a raid.

Police also recovered many videos during the raid conducted at his house and temple, reports NDTV.

Law enforcers have started investigating the matter and the accused has been placed on five-day remand.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Jogind Sharma urged the people not to circulate the videos.

Previously, a self-styled “Godman” named Asaram was sentenced to life imprisonment for raping a 16-year-old girl whose family had brought her to visit his ashram in Jodhpur. Similarly, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the rape of two of his devotees at the Dera Sacha Sauda ashram in Haryana's Sirsa.
