A former devottee now settled in US has lodged a complaint
There is some more bad news for Nithyananda alias A Rajasekhara.
The Karnataka CID on Wednesday filed an additional charge sheet in the Ramanagaram court, claiming that besides several women, Nithyananda forced a man to have sex with him on a number of occasions both at his Bidadi ashram near here as well as in some cities in the US.
Director General, CID, R K Dutta told Deccan Herald that “evidence has emerged that Nithyananda was indulging in unnatural sex.”
The man, whose identity is not being revealed, complained to the State CID some time ago over Skype and his statement was video-recorded after due permission from the court. He is now a resident of Seattle in the US.
This is the first time a male devotee has come forward to lodge a complaint against Nithyananda against whom the first charge sheet was filed by the police after his arrest in Solon, Himachal Pradesh, where he had fled to when a secretly filmed sex video of him was shown by television news channels in Chennai and Bangalore.
In his complaint, the former Nithyananda devotee has given graphic accounts of how his so-called preceptor forced him into “unnatural sex” at least on six occasions at the Bidadi ashram as well as a number of times in Seattle and some other US cities. Police sources said these sexual acts were punishable under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code.
As part of the additional charge sheet, the CID has enclosed the statement of a US-based clinical psychiatrist who has alleged that when Nithyananda was on the run, he had admitted that he has had sex with several women. The psychiatrist was very well known to Nithyananda and had tried to get to the bottom of the controversy created after the sex video went public.
In pursuance of its original case against Nithyananda, the CID has made Jamuna Rani, the wife of his secretary A Sadhananda, alias Aiyya, a co-accused.
The charge against Jamuna Rani is that she wilfully signed on behalf of Nithyananda on the infamous non-disclosure agreement that bound his devotees to silence over the various sexual acts, including tantra sex, he forced them into at his Bidadi ashram.
The CID also notified the court that despite several notices to Nithyananda to appear for medical/physical examination, he did not appear before the police which, according to a source, proved mens rea or “guilty mind”.
Despite several attempts to reach him over the phone, there was no response from Nithyananda’s lawyer C V Nagesh.
