Furthermore Chinmayanand's arrest comes on the complaint of a 23 year old law student, who accused him of blackmail and rape in a video message posted on the social media on August 23 and the very next day, the woman went missing and was later found in Dausa, Rajasthan. Further the Supreme Court, which took suo moto cognisance of the incident, called the victim for a closed door hearing after which the court ordered the Uttar Pradesh government to set up a Special SIT to probe the allegations.


Moreover the law student, who studied in a college run by Chinmayanand, said in her statement that the self-proclaimed god man first got a video recording made while she was taking a bath and this was used to blackmail her. Meanwhile she claimed that she was raped several times by Chinmayanand, who threatened to eliminate her family if she raised her voice. Reportedly the matter also turned into a major controversy with the Supreme Court intervention and the opposition accusing the yogi Adityanath government of favoring Chinmayanand and avoiding his arrest.
