Alleged rapist priest of Mangeshi Temple denied bail


The Additional District and Sessions Court in Ponda in South Goa rejected the bail plea of a priest of Mangeshi Temple on Saturday.

The priest was booked for allegedly molesting two women in June this year.

However, after the bail plea was rejected, the accused Dhananjay Bhave could not be traced, a police official said, adding police were on look out for him.

In July this year, the priest was booked in two separate cases under section 354 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) after two victims, including a Goan-origin student studying medicine in the USA, lodged a complaint with police that they were allegedly molested by the priest.
