CID gets proof to nail Swami Nithyananda

By DNA Correspondent | Place: Bangalore | Agency: DNA
CID officials have said they have more incriminating evidence to prove that Swami Nithyananda indulged in sex with his devotees. Based on this evidence, the CID has filed an additional chargesheet against him.
The first chargesheet was filed on July 25, 2010, in Ramnagaram court. A former disciple, Lenin Karuppan, had recorded a phone conversation with Nithyananda, wherein the latter spoke about his sexual encounters. The CID said a recording of the conversation was sent to the experts, who concluded the voice was indeed Nithyananda’s. Officials said they had a certificate from experts in this regard. Also, forensic science department has come to the conclusion that a confidante of Nithyananda was instrumental in convincing devotees to have sex with him. When the CID raided Nithyananda’s ashram, it found non-disclosure agreements, prohibiting the signatories from disclosing the ‘contents of the spiritual course’. On behalf of Nithyananda’s ashram, a trustee, Jamuna Rani, signed the agreements. She had contended that the signatures were not hers. However, experts at Forensic Science Lab, Hyderabad, studied her signature and concluded that she had signed on the paper. CID DG RK Datta said that based on forensic reports, the CID booked Rani on charges of abetting devotees to have sex with Nithyananda.
The CID has also recorded the complaint of a Mumbai-based man who has stated he was brainwashed to have sex with Nithyananda.

CID files additional charge sheets against Nithyananda

Bangalore, Mar 21, 2012, DHNS :
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.

Nithyananda's ex-aide surrenders

CHENNAI: Lenin Karuppan surrendered before CB-CID sleuths on Wednesday. The CB-CID registered a case against Lenin Karuppan, a former aide of Nithyananda, after Nithya Athmaprabhananda, manager of Nithyananda's ashram, complained that Lenin had demanded crores of rupees to keep the tapes a secret. 

Lenin, who was brought before CB-CID officials by his lawyer Sumathi, was taken into custody by deputy superintendent of police Barani Kumar, who is investigating the case, and interrogated. "After conducting a detailed interrogation, if needed, we will arrest Lenin," inspector general of police (CB-CID) Manjunatha said. 

Police, however, refused to divulge the information revealed by Lenin during his interrogation. On July13, 2011, Nithya Atmaprabhananda, a devotee of Nithyananda and manager of his ashram, filed a complaint with the Chennai police commissioner against the then Sun Network chief operating officer Hansraj Saxena, his assistant Iyyappan, 'Nakkheeran' Gopal and Kamraj, Lenin Karuppan, his brother Kumar and some others, levelling charges of extortion, criminal intimidation, criminal conspiracy, etc., in connection with the release of the video. 

Lenin Karuppan and his brother Kumar filed anticipatory bail petitions that were rejected by the sessions court concerned in Chennai. They moved the Madras high court on September 6, 2011 for anticipatory bail but were again refused bail. Four days later, Hansraj Saxena and Iyyappan were arrested and taken into judicial custody.

Nithyananda whistleblower surrenders to CID’s crime branch in TN

Chennai, Mar 14 2012, DHNS
In a sudden, yet significant development, Lenin Karuppan, the whistleblower who exposed Bidadi-based Nithyananda in March 2010, surrendered before the state CID’s Crime Branch in Chennai on Wednesday.

Police said that Lenin appeared at the CB-CID headquarters in Guindy and presented himself to the police authorities. He was accompanied by his advocate. 

The “whistle-blower” also faces charges of leaking the sleazy video tape featuring Nithyananda and his woman disciple at their ashram in Bidadi near Bangalore.

Ranjitha later denied any such involvement with him and claimed it was a morphed picture to defame her and the “spiritual guru”. The tapes created a sensation when it was shown on a particular Tamil TV news channel in March 2010. Subsequently, the Karnataka CID arrested Nithyananda in Solan, Himachal Pradesh.

Lenin was wanted by the CB-CID in connection with a complaint filed by Nithyananda that he had threatened him and asked for money over the video tapes last year. 

Lenin, however, has denied the allegations, claiming that Nithyananda wanted to get even with him by filing “false cases”.

Dharmananda (Lenin) Welcomes Custody - Continues His Struggle for Truth


Dear Friends,

Greetings from Dharmananda (alias Lenin Karuppan), the whistle blower who exposed the real face of Nithyananda. Self-­‐declared Avatar Nithyananda and his organizations are facing fraud charges in US from a devotee who lost crores of dollars, just like many others. There is information from US that Nithyananda also owns many benami companies there.

To confuse and misdirect the public and judiciary, many false cases are being filed, particularly against me and other important witnesses. In the case filed against me in Tamil Nadu, Nithyananda has successfully blocked my Anticipatory Bail petition. I am ready and willing to cooperate with Tamil Nadu police anytime. I always have respect and gratitude for Tamil Nadu police. They gave me protection when I escaped from Nithyananda and filed an FIR in 2010. Later I had chance to meet some senior people, and I have deep respect for their commitment to duty. In view of this I humbly wish to state that I will give full cooperation for bringing out the truth. I am surrendering to the Tamil Nadu CID today (14/03/2012).

Until now I was silent because I sincerely believed that getting Anticipatory Bail in the false case should not be difficult and my lawyer advised me to be patient. I have no reason to be afraid and I am always ready to cooperate for the sake of truth. I am happy I helped many innocent victims and devotees by exposing Nithyananda’s real face. Many devotees have thanked me personally for saving them. Their gratitude and good will is a great source of strength. And it will help me to fight against corruption and false propaganda. I am not afraid to stand for truth even though I am paying a heavy price for it. I will continue to fight against Nithyananda’s fraud!

I am willing to be in custody because I know that Truth will definitely win and my sacrifice will help many more in future! I profusely thank the media, which helped me by publishing true information, and the public for their support.
