Bengaluru: Fake astrologer who fleeced woman CA of Rs 40 lac, thrashed

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP) 

Bengaluru, Aug 23: A person, who claimed to be an astrologer with powers to glimpse their past lives, was beaten up black and blue by a crowd of ladies in full public glare on Tuesday, after finding that his claims were false. A video of several women beating up the man has become viral in social websites. 

The incident happened at Hanumanthanagar in the city. The person who was at the receiving end of this treatment has been identified as Venkata Krishnacharya alias V K Achar. He happens to be a resident of Srinivasanagar here. 

The police have taken V K Achar into custody after having been thrashed by a gang of women. It is said that Achar has expertise in convincing women about his astrological skills and narrating them stories which they believed to be true and he could gauge them out of his divine powers. He had convinced many ladies that he was their husband in the past birth. He had succeeded in earning the goodwill of a woman and then motivating here to raise a loan of Rs 40 lac in her name and hand over the proceeds to him. 

It is said that a lady chartered accountant aged 25 had consulted Achar to find remedy to certain defects in her horoscope as her efforts to find a good husband had not materialized. Achar met her on several occasional as a follow-up of the first meeting to set right planetary positions and make them work in her favour. The astrologer, during these meetings, convinced her to believe that he had been her husband in his previous birth and because he did something wrong with her then, he could not become her husband in this birth. 

The police, during their inquiry, found that a few women were even repaying loans raised by Achar in installments. This was the first complaint ever to be registered against him. The police have learnt that the chartered accountant had availed a loan of Rs 40 lac on his behalf. She was even ready to marry the astrologer even though she had been threatened by him of dire consequences if she leaked information about the loan to others. 

The angry women who beat up Achar black and blue claimed that he was able to hypnotize women and make them believe that he possesses divine powers. He had told some of the women that he was their husband in their past life, and conjured up stories that appeared real to them. 

Reports claim that the parents of the chartered accountant, realizing that their daughter was blindly following the advice of the astrologer who was misleading her, approached a group of women. It is said that the police have strictly warned him against meeting the said chartered accountant in future.

    Most of the CA’s are dumb and have no common sense . Yes , academically somehow they have managed to pass but ‘logic’ and ‘common sense ‘ is beyond them.

    It’s interesting how you connect everything with politics, do you think that is what caused the amazon forest fires recently too? Also the floods in India? And the polluted lakes ..... This conman has been able to succeed in his plots only because of some women s blind faith despite being educated.If we don’t look after ourselves and stop thinking about our well-being obviously the cheats will misuse the opportunity. We can’t blame any govt opposition for things like this.

    Jesus on his faithful following Astrology charts and with Addictions.

    Message to John Leary.

    Monday, September 16, 2013:
    Jesus said: “My people, I have warned My faithful before about not getting involved with enneagrams, astrology charts, or any other occult practices as Ouija boards, tarrot cards, or fortune telling. These things are all connected with pathways for the evil spirits. Also avoid reading or watching Harry Potter books and movies which are linked to witchcraft, curses, spells, and other evil spirits. My faithful need to wear blessed sacramentals of My Blessed Mother’s rosary, and her brown scapular. A blessed Benedictine Cross also can help you against evil spirits. Many people acquire addictions to drugs, alcohol, gambling, overeating, or any other substance abuse. There are demons associated with these addictions as well as at occult meetings where people drink evil potions. This is why people need to pray a binding of the evil spirits to the foot of My cross in My Name, Jesus. Pray the St. Michael prayer and other deliverance prayers to combat the demons that are controlling people. Even your relic of the true cross is helpful in fighting demons. I told My apostles that prayer and fasting could force some demons to flee. Pray deliverance prayers as a group using holy water and blessed salt. When possible have an exorcist priest pray over possessed people. You have a battle of good and evil going on constantly, so be persistent in your prayers and novenas to deliver your family members from their addictions. To keep your peace, do not let any addictions control you.”

    Jesus on hypnotism and chip control in the west.

    Message to John Leary.

    Sunday, August 4, 2019:

    Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing so many mass killings, that you were wondering if they were connected with each other. There is a master plan to use these mass killings as a means to take away your guns. You know how your various agencies have the means and the knowledge of how to make someone want to kill a lot of people in a crowded place. You know of putting chips in people to control their minds. You also know of people who were hypnotized that can be following someone’s direction of their will. Some people also have psychological problems, and drugs can drive them to do these killings. When there are so many incidents, it is true that they are being directed by a group who wants total control of your country. Pray that these groups of evil ones can be controlled, so you know when and where they will strike next.”

    Our Lady on Paradise

    Message to Maureen.

    August 22, 2019
    Feast of the Queenship of Mary

    Our Lady comes seated on a throne with many angels all around Her. She says: "Praise be to Jesus. Today, I have come to remind you, dear children, that My Heart is the gateway to the New Jerusalem. Not one of you can enter Paradise without first passing through the purification of My Immaculate Heart. It is in My Heart consciences are convicted."

    "The New Jerusalem is Heaven upon earth where there is no sin. It is then, God's Will will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. You see the sparkling crown upon My Head - each jewel representing a martyred soul. These are many modern-day martyrs of Holy Love. These souls reject any compromise of the Faith and cling to the Truth. When they reach Heaven, they too will be part of My crown. The battle is brutal - good against evil - but the victory is everlasting."

    "Embrace My Heart as I embrace your hearts today. Know that I am a part of your every present moment. Rejoice in this."

    Read 2 Thessalonians 2:13-15+

    Chosen for Salvation

    But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God chose you from the beginning to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.

    If Madam C. A. wanted to rectify her horoscope, she could have done it through her parents.. Where parents know better and much more experienced than her in this society. They may not be holding modern days degrees... . But what wisdom they have through their life experiences..they would have guided her towards the right path. No degrees are equivalent to their wisdom ... Foolishness of C. A. Approaching some unknown sources without the knowledge of elders surely end up in this way or it may go more than this say either rape/kidnap/murder. Finally, parents only rescued her.

    High education does not guarantee 'Common Sense'. Many a times the highly educated are more idiotic due to their 'Know All' arrogance.
    If you have common sense you can successfully navigate through life. The same cannot be said of education, money & power.

    Thousands of youths may have committed suicide in the name of having defects in so called horoscope.

    It doesn't matter how educated they are. Its disgusting that how people believe such illogical and baseless claims they make. Even politicians and are costumers of this frauds so how can we expect an "END" to this evil.

I appreciate leaders like Sidharamaya declaring war against blind beliefs and superstitions. He does not believe in temple rounds and lost the race!

    Looks like achar is having know of vasi karana hypnoteism which he use to satisfy one self with womens and blackmail them to grab money in one or other way. Past life deeds will appear in present..but no one able to predict exactly what gone wrong in last births. We should appreciate achar how he is to convince womens without there knowledge. Like this people having HENDDATI in all places. Cheating is there profession and much well-off on it. Many years back a woman from bangalore from diplomat family from other community fallen love with swami from delhi. Latter swami murdered her and no one comes to know for many months. Satan is strong around. We cannot able to compete with him. Chances are more slip to his advise often to do bad things and unknowingly bring bad thoughts in our mind. Our control on oneself misguided and throw us to follow wrong things.

    They both should time travel and see if they were really a husband and wife in their previous life. Divine powers sometimes short circuits and end up in taking beatings. The CA will not lose her licence if she use the time travel theory which is scientific.
