The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Tuesday directed Punjab Police to register FIR against self-styled Godwoman Radhe Ma on the plea of Phagwara resident Surender Mittal.
Surender Mittal had approached court saying Radhe Ma had been constantly threatening him to not speak against her.
Last week, a special CBI court in Panchkula had sentenced the Dera chief to 20-year imprisonment in the rape case.
The conviction of the Dera head in a 2002 rape case had triggered arson and violence in Haryana that claimed 38 lives and injured over 250 people.
