ANI had earlier carried a report with the headline that read as follows: "Medical tests exonerate Nithyananda of rape charge? This update overrides the earlier story. (ANI)
Chennai, Oct.16 (ANI): Reacting to reports appearing in the media that recent medical tests carried out on self-styled god man Nithyananda by a government-run hospital in southern India have shown that he is incapable of committing rape, R. Kalyana Raman, a former Bharatiya Janata Mazdoor Morcha national secretary and media face of the BJP in Tamil Nadu, has rejected the findings of the "so-called tests" and the media report based on them, and claimed that followers of Nithayananda are seeking "attention from the Sangh Pariwar to get a reprieve" for the self-styled god man.
In a rejoinder to the report published by ANI, Mr. R. Kalyana Raman said, "I am fully acquainted with the case of Nithayananda. No right thinking person can let it happen. I remain in the service of this great nation and will fight against injustice, and, I see Nithyananda as criminal in a Sanyasi garb."
In his reaction and response to the earlier report, Mr. Kalyana Raman listed the following facts:
1.Medical test results of Nithyananda have not yet been released by the CID. They have been submitted in sealed cover, and the CID is likely to submit it to the court along with the final charge sheet, which is the normal procedure.
2. According to CID, the medical test report confirms that Nithyananda is capable (i.e. potent). So, the news that tests have found him to be incapable is absolutely false and malicious.
3. The Central Forensic Science Lab has confirmed in 2010 that the video of Nithyananda (seen with Mrs. Ranjitha) is authentic, that it is not morphed. The FSL report confirms that the persons in it are in fact Nithyananda and Ranjitha only.
4.Mr. Kalyana Raman further states that it is important to note that Nithyananda has been circulating four reports, allegedly prepared by the FBI in US, which have found the video to be morphed.
"A careful review of those four reports will show that the original video was never really available to Nithyananda. So, the four agencies have only tested some video found on YouTube. Clearly this is not an authentic reliable forensic report. Secondly, the experts are not FBI, but independent forensic experts who evaluate anything for a fee," he maintained.
5. Nithyananda made all of his victims and close disciples to sign a sex contract.
6. Nithyananda confessed to whistle blower Lenin in 2010 about his sexual acts. The audio confession between Nithyananda and whistle blower Lenin is part of the charge sheet. Several other witness statements in the charge sheet also confirm the same. In 2010, Nithyananda himself confessed to several witnesses that he had relationship with several women.
