In a fresh twist to the godman bobbiting case, the girl's mother has now filed a complaint against her daughter with the state police chief and the women's commission, saying the girl is a mental patient and that Sreehari aka Swami Gangeshananda did not sexually assault her.

In the complaint filed in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday, the mother also alleged her daughter had an affair with another man to which the godman had objected. This angered the girl and she attacked Sreehari in an act of revenge, the woman pointed out in her complaint, adding that she suspects the girl's boyfriend helped her in chopping off the godman's genitals.
