Self- claimed godman Nithyananda Swami is in trouble again facing charges of rape, cheating, unnatural offences and criminal intimidation.

On Monday, chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda told media that he was asking the Ramanagar district administration including deputy commissioner
and superintendent of police to seize the Dhyanapeetha ashram of Nithyananda and the documents and arrest him immediately.

A woman from Karnataka, who settled in USA, has charged allegations of sexual assault and cheating against Nithyananda recently.

After this, public and various organisations have staged protests all over the state demanding strict action against the tainted swami.

Based on the report filed by Ramanagar district deputy commissioner and superintendent of police, the chief minister has issued orders of strict action against the Swami.

He said, "I have asked the district administration to seize the ashram and recover all documents from there and arrest him immediately. I have directed the police to file strong objections against granting bail to Nithyananda in the court."

He also ordered a high-level inquiry about the incident and take Dhyanapeetha into the hold of district administration until the problem is solved. The chief minister said that he has directed regional commissioner Shambhu Dayal Meena to submit a report to the government on the incident.

The district authorities have already camped in the Dhyanapeetha and asked Nithya’s followers not to move out of the campus as the police need to question them about the alleged illegal happenings in the ashram. Police have also issued search warrant for the arrest of controversial swami, who is absconding since three days.

Sadananda Gowda would hold discussions with the law department to seek cancellation of bail of the self-styled godman, who was granted bail by the Karnataka high court in connection with a case of rape and criminal intimidation.
 
Background:
*On June 8, 2012, police had lodged criminal cases against him and his followers for allegedly assaulting pro-Kannada activists during a press conference at his Ashram.

*The FIR was filed on complaints from activists of Nava Nirmana Sene in connection with an altercation at the ashram the previous night.

*On a counter complaint by two followers of Nithyananda, police also registered two FIRs against a TV reporter and Sene activists for alleged outrage of modesty, physical assault and threat to life.

*June 7 2012: The followers of Nithyananda allegedly attacked on a TV reporter and others.

*On June 8: Tension at Nityananda Dhyanapeetam in Bidadi. Members of some organisations allegedly tried to barge inside the Ashram and the police resorted to  lathicharge to control the situation.

*Following the incident, the police have clamped prohibitory orders around one kilometre radius of the Ashram till June 13.

*Meanwhile, based on two complaints alleging physical assualt and threatening life against Nityananda and his disciples by the reporter and a member of Nava Nirmana Sene, the police arrested eight disciples of Nityananda. 16 members of the Sene are arrested.

*From June 8, Nithyananda again went absconding fearing arrest and sought bail in the Ramanagar court.

In 2010
*On March 18, 2010: The Bidadi police of Ramanagar district registered case against  Nithyananda under seven sections agaisnt the holy man.

*The charges were imposed on the basis of the details filed by Central Crime Branch (CCB) police of Chennai and Coimabatore in Tamil Nadu and also the statements given by the former devotee of Nithyananda, who surrendered before the Tamil Nadu police.

*This was following the claims of Nithya Dharmananda alias K. Lenin, car driver of Swami Nityananda who claimed reponsibility of shooting the holy man in a secret affair with a devotee who was identified as Tamil actress Ranjitha. He had claimed to have used an airpurifier embedded with a camera the recording was made.

*Nithyananda then escaped and hide in Himalaya region.  Nithyananda, who had been on the run for almost one-and-a-half months, was traced through the SIM card he was using after the CID received a tip-off.

*On April  21, 2010, A team of the Karnataka State Criminal Investigation Department (CID) arrested Swami Nithyananda in Solan district of Himachal Pradesh.

*On June 12, 201,  the self-styled Swami Nithyananda was released on bail by the High Court, after spending 53 days in Ramanagara jail.

 

 

The vedio clippings recorded by Lenin, who was once the car driver, that showed the tainted Swami Nithyananda with

a Tamil actress have been established as original, as per the CID investigation.

The CDs of the video clips were sent to the Hyderabad Forensic Science Laboratory,which verified that the video was genuine.

Tainted swami Nithyananda allegedly forced his devotees to indulge in sex on various occasions. This was the statement given

by one of his devotees with whom the Swami got intimate in the name of ’enlightenment’ that was submitted to the

Ramangaram court with the chargesheet.

In January 2007, the self-proclaimed godman visited Ardh Kumbha Mela with a huge group of people from the Ashram.

Since his secretary did not travel with him citing ill health, the devotee was given the primary responsibility or taking care

of Nithyananda’s personal arrangements in Allahabad.

In the Kumbha Ghat, the Swami called her to his tent one afternoon and got intimate with her and asked her to perform

oral sex on him. She stated that when she resisted by telling he was violating the sanctity of the sacred place, he reportedly

said that he want her to do that as he was going into Samadhi too often.

He also told her that this would help him stay in his physical form and that by doing so, she was doing the greatest service to

her master and herself. Nithyananda is also said to have told her that this was a technique that many great masters of the past

had used to stay in physical form and to thus stay away from the super-conscious state of the Samadhi.

According to her statement, in April 2005, the swami asked the devotee to visit him at St Louis and even arranged her flight ticket.There, she shared the room with his personal assistant. She stated in her statement that Nithyananda called her a few times to hisroom and asked me to press his feet, while he continued to brainwash her by talking about enlightenment.

She stated the swami tried to get intimate with her by saying, ’You are are being enlightened, I can see already you have become so light.You are my Radha, my most beloved. Drop your mind and accept this reality. If you continue like this, you will become enlightenedvery soon."

" tamed their women like milking goats in shed? "; says Sadaa-Ananda. Sounds like, "Temple Bulls" of olden days, literally. Hope some one will write about the atrocities of those temple bulls real or incarnated into humans.

Double standards. They eat meat in Inasam’ hotel. They eat beef at home. But serve vegetables to guests.

Where is Bajrang Dal and Rama Sena now? Are these jokers tamed only to antagonize minorities?
