Controversial self-styled godman Om Swami was on Wednesday arrested in a case filed by his brother who had accused the former Bigg Boss contestant of stealing bicycles along with some documents from his shop nine years ago, police said.
Vinodanand Jha, also known as Om Swami, was declared a proclaimed offender by the Saket Court in Delhi last year in the case, the police said.
In November 2008, a FIR was registered at Lodhi Colony police station against him on a complaint by his younger brother Pramod Jha.
Pramod had accused him of breaking the lock of his bicycle shop in Lodhi Colony along with three men and stealing 11 bicycles, expensive spare parts, sale deed of the house and important documents, a police officer said.
Last year, a non-bailable warrant was issued against Om Swami by the Saket court which subsequently declared him a proclaimed offender in the case, the officer said.
The godman was hiding in a house in northeast Delhi's Bhajanpura and was arrested by a joint team of Lodhi Colony police station and Inter-State Cell of Crime Branch, the officer added.
