Frustrated over swami's Nithyananda's sex romp wide coverage, disciples of Swami Nithyananda scuffled with the media camera crew to stop them videotaping their guru, during his appearance at the court yesterday.
Shot to fame: Disciples of Swami Nithyananda tangled with a media
camera crew to stop them videotaping their guru outside the Ramnagar
session court, where the swami was presented yesterday.
The incident occurred at Ramnagar session court when Nithyananda along with his associates appeared before the Ramnagar sessions court.
Nithyananda has been summoned to appear before the sessions court after the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) filed a chargesheet against him, accusing him of having sex romps with his disciples, criminal intimidation and hurting religious sentiments recently.
When Nithyananda stepped after the court posted the case to the next hearing, a group of media persons tried to take his video for which his associates tried hard to stop to whisk him away.
During the melee, an associate, identified as Ishwar, scuffled with a camera crew leading to heated arguments followed by a scuffle. Sensing danger, Nithyananda hurried towards his SUV and sped away leaving his associates behind.
However, no complaint has been filed in this regard. Ramnagar Superintendent of police said, "Though there is a general security cover in the court premises, we have not received any information on this incident," he said adding that the police were not even informed about Nithyananda's visit to the court yesterday.
It may be recalled that a local schoolteacher had hurled a slipper at Nithyananda while he was brought to the session court by the CID, a few months ago.
