A cult leader who imprisoned and raped women for over 30 years at his London home manipulated them into thinking that he possessed "supernatural" powers, including having a robot with the ability to read minds.

Aravindan Balakrishnan died in prison on Friday while serving time for running the criminal cult from his London home since in the 1970s.

He was jailed in 2016 after it emerged that he had been imprisoning and sexually assaulting women.

Balakrishnan also manipulated his victims into thinking that he had a robot, which he called Jackie, that could read their minds.

He then used "Jackie" to further terrify his victims into submission.

The cult's main belief was that only Balakrishnan and Chinese dictator Mao Zedong would have the right to "establish an international dictatorship of the proletariat".

His views somehow managed to become even more extreme from this point.

The jury at Southwark Crown Court heard that he ordered his "follower" to rejoice in the deaths of anti-communists.

He was even alleged to have "wished" that three million people had died at the massacre at Tiananmen Square and not the 3,000 people who were killed.

Balakrishnan's daughter Katie Morgan-Davies said her ordeal had been "horrible, so dehumanising and degrading” after waiving her right to anonymity.

Katie said she believed that her father was using the cult as a “pilot unit” for his plans to take over the world, and said that he would idolise dictators like Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and Saddam Hussein.

She added: "I felt like a caged bird with clipped wings."

Ms Katie Morgan-Davies branded her father a “narcissist and a psychopath” and added: "The people he looked up to were people like Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot and Saddam Hussein – you couldn't criticise them either in the house.

"They were his gods and his heroes. These were the sort of people he wanted to emulate."

Ms Katie Morgan-Davies told how she had been beaten, as well as being banned from singing nursery rhymes and attending school.
