Swami Bhimanand Was NOT A Sathya Sai Baba Devotee
Shiv Murat Dwivedi (alias “Ichchadhari Sant Swami Bhimanandji Maharaj Chitrakootwale” alias “Rajiv Ranjan Dwivedi” alias “Karan Kumar Dwivedi”) received world-wide attention for a sex scandal racket in India that has been widely broadcast through international television, newspapers, magazines, online news sites and YouTube. The “fraud Godman” Dwivedi was accused of being a prostitution ring leader who used the name, form and fame of Shirdi Sai Baba to bolster his pseudo-guru reputation.
Although numerous media broadcasts correctly stated that Shiv Murat Dwivedi claimed to be a devotee of Shirdi Sai Baba, some unscrupulous journalists and writers have erroneously and falsely published that Shiv Murat Dwivedi was a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba. Shiv Murat Dwivedi was NOT a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba, nor did Shiv Murat Dwivedi ever claim to be a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba.
The following two articles are sleazy media publications that falsely claimed that Shiva Murat Dwivedi was a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba:

Sleazy godman under police net worth Rs 500 cr

Delhi: The latest godman in the Delhi police net, Swami Bhimanand, is worth almost Rs 500 crore and used to cater to high end clients.
The long, divine sounding name Ichchadhari Sant Bhimanand Ji Maharaj could not even save the godman from the long arm of the law.
Swami Bhimanand professed to be a devotee of Satya Sai Baba and among his thousands of followers boasted prominent politicians and bureaucrats. But on the side, he was running a sex racket for 10 years which the Delhi police busted last week.
“We will be booking him under MCOCA as his past has all the necessary ingredients,” said Delhi Police Commissioner HGS Dhaliwal.
The 39-year-old Swamin Bhimanand, whose real name is Shreemurath Dwivedi, started work in Delhi as a security guard in 1988. In 1997 he was arrested for managing a prostitution ring. When he got out of jail, he took up religion simply as a front to his sleazy dealings.
He used to supply women, including air hostesses, to high end clients all across Delhi and used to earn approximately Rs 2.5 lakh everyday.
When produced in court on Wednestday, the godman of course denied all these charges.
“I have been framed. All allegations against me are false,” the swami said.
But police have recovered five diaries from him which have the names, phone numbers and even rates of certain prostitutes.
Sources say Swami Bhimanand had a very wide network of pimps and prostitutes and was worth more than Rs 300 crore. The police now wants to take him on remand to know more about his dealings and also about the politicians whose patronage he always enjoyed.

Hindu ‘God-Man’ in British Airways prostitution scandal
A Hindu clergyman and self-styled “god-man” with over 100,000 reputed followers in India has been caught running a US$10 million high-end prostitution racket involving British Airways hostesses.
Shiv Myra Dwivedi, aka Ichchadhari Sant Swami Bhimanand Ji Maharaj Chitrakoot Wale, 39, claims to be a follower of the legendary Sathya Sai Baba. Dwivedi was allgedly using his Sai Baba Temple in Khanpur, South Delhi as a front for an operation that employed somewhere between 60 and 200 prostitutes across India. Also found inside Dwivedi’s temple were drug and pornography caches on an epic scale. Adding to the fun, it appears that phone records found inside the temple link the prostitution operation to prominent Delhi cops, Indian television stars and politicians.
The Indian press is already calling Dwivedi the “pimp guru.”
The operation of the “pimp guru” employed mainly students and air hostesses, including British Airways and Jagson employees. Dwivedi was arrested over the weekend by Delhi police while conducting a deal with another (alleged) pimp behind a cinema in the city’s Saket neighborhood. A police team sent to raid Dwivedi’s temple subsequently found a labyrinth of hidden tunnels and rooms that contained personal diaries, cash, financial records for the operation and healthy supplies of pornography and undisclosed illegal drugs. According to Delhi authorities, the Swami hid the entrance to the secret tunnels in a meditation room.
The “pimp guru” also runs a 200-bed hospital and has several power political patrons in the Samajwadi Party and reportedly has several well-known politicians among his clients.
But for all of Dwivedi’s religious trappings, his pimp skills seem defiantly old-school:
“He used the guise of spirituality to run an organised prostitution racket since 1999 and has made billions of rupees by supplying women to his high-profile clients,” said a police officer, refusing to be named.
“He would force young women to join the sex racket, offered them money, expensive gifts and had even provided them with cars.”
Apart from the Delhi temple, the prostitution operation also rented out of several rented houses in Delhi and in the state of Uttar Pradesh. According to Indian sources, his non-Indian prostitutes would dress only in saffron clothes in public to avoid suspicion.
Dwivedi, a native of Uttar Pradesh, worked his way up from a security guard at a massage parlor in the 1990s to become a prominent guru. But he had trouble along the way: Dwivedi was previously arrested in 2000 for running a prostitution ring centered around yoga and meditation workshops.Strangest of all, reports indicate that Dwivedi’s father and brother were previously arrested on unrelated murder allegations in his hometown of Chitrakoot.
British Airways is investigating the allegations.
Needless to say, there are several YouTube videos that provide actual footage of Shiv Murat Dwivedi posing in front of pictures of Shirdi Sai Baba, NOT Sathya Sai Baba. See for yourself:
In the following YouTube video, one can see Shiva Murat Dwivedi performing his “snake dance” in front of a Shirdi Sai Baba picture. The news broadcast also stated that the fraud Godman Shiv Murat Dwivedi pretended to be a devotee of the Sai Baba of Shirdi. Dwivedi also sold CDs and DVDs of himself in direct association with Shirdi Sai Baba.
The following YouTube video shows the sex-scandal-imbroiled Shiva Murat Dwivedi doing his “snake dance” in front of a picture of Shirdi Sai Baba. The YouTube video exposes the Fraud Godman’s sex racket & sex scandal.
When news broadcasts stated that Shiva Murat Dwivedi claimed to be a devotee of Shirdi Sai Baba, people dismissed Dwivedi as a fraud with no suspicions of impropriety against Shirdi Sai Baba. However, when news broadcasts incorrectly and falsely stated that Shiva Murat Dwivedi claimed to be a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba, people suggested and implied impropriety against Sathya Sai Baba!
