Yesterday a very damaging false news has been published by ANI, claiming that Nithyananda's medical test reports confirm that he is impotent, and that the rape charges are false! There are several false, defamatory and misleading statements, which are clarified below.
I assume that a reputed and responsible media like ANI will NOT intentionally mislead the public with some vested interest or hidden motive. But it appears from the news article that your office has not verified with the CID re. the (false) informations given by Nithyananda. Here are the facts for your information:
1. Medical test results of Nithyananda have NOT yet been released by the CID. They have been submitted in sealed cover and CID is likely to submit it to the court along with the final charge sheet, which is the normal procedure.
2. According to CID (you can clarify with DGP, CID, 080-22256963) the news that medical test reports have found Nithyananda to be incapable of sexual acts is absolutely false & malicious.
3. As per Supreme Court orders, identity of Rape victims must NOT be exposed in media. It is quite shocking to see a reputed media like ANI mentioning the victim's name and blatantly assassinating her character.
It is deplorable to see ANI becoming a tool in the hands of rape accused & publicly attacking a rape victim, at a time when the entire nation is standing against rapes and rape laws have been strengthened to help victims to find speedy justice. In this very Nithyananda case, even the Hon'ble Supreme Court had ordered Nithyananda to stop delaying the case, and instead to go to trial soon and come out clean.
4. Please see attached FSL report. Topmost forensic lab in the country, Central Forensic Science Lab has confirmed in 2010 itself that sex video of Nithyananda is authentic, it is NOT morphed. Nithyananda's alleged US forensic reports are questionable as he does not have the original video.
5. Nithyananda made all the victims and close disciples to sign a sex-contract. Please see attached sex-contract (Non-Disclosure Agreement), refer underlined sections in pages 8, 9 and also pages 4 & 5.
6. Nithyananda confessed to whistle blower Lenin in 2010 about his sexual acts. See attached Audio confession between Nithyananda& whistle blower Lenin. In 2010, Nithyananda himself confessed to several witnesses that he had relationship with several women.
ANI has done great disservice not only to the victims in the case, but has tremendously misled the trusting public to repose faith in a fake Godman, a rape accused, a cult leader, even before tile court has examined the case in detail in a trial and even before Court can give a just verdict.
It is absolutely essential and expected that as a responsible media you immediately withdraw the article with completely false & misleading information. Further ANI is obligated to the public to clarify the facts with accurate information from the real source such as CID and based on actual documents in the chargesheet.
Please do the needful without further delay to undo the great damage done to the public and to Hindus.
Lenin Karuppan @ Sri Nithya Dharmananda
