BANGALORE: Chief minister B S Yeddyurappa and home minister V S Acharya have felt that the repeated telecast of the Swami Nityananda scandal footage to be in bad taste.
Yeddyurappa said that he was waiting for the investigation report on the case from Tamil Nadu, while Acharya said that the state government has directed DC and SP of Ramanagaram to probe the case. As no report has come from Tamil Nadu, no case has been booked against the swami.
The repeated telecast of the footage, he said does not well with the tradition of our country. "It does not adhere to our culture," the chief minister said. Regarding the ashram land, he said there is no law to take away private land.
"I have heard that Tamil Nadu officials have said that the act has happened in Karnataka. The swami is absconding, unless the land belongs to the government, we can’t seize it. If there is any complaint, we will take action," the chief minister said.
"About the warning given to the swamis in TN, I am not aware. At least we are not going to do such things," he added.
Tiruchi police arrive at ashram
A police inspector from Tiruchi has arrived at Bidadi police station looking for a youth from Tiruchi, who has joined Dhyanapeetam Ashram of Swami Nityananda.

"It all depends on what the boy wants to do. He can either go with his parents or stay back. We are only assisting the Tiruchi police," police sources said.
