Jakarta Police have announced they will question spiritual guru Anand Krishna on March 15, in relation to sexual harassment claims made against him.

The city police spokesman, Sr. Comr. Boy Rafli Amar, said Thursday that Anand would be questioned as a witness at 10 a.m.

One of Anand's students, Tara Pradipta Laksmi, filed a report against the spiritual guru for sexual harassment last month.

She said she was hypnotized by Anand when the molestation took place, leaving her unable to refuse his advances. Anand has repeatedly denied the accusation.
