Godman Nithyananda absconding; arrest warrant issued
Looks like more trouble is in the offing for self-proclaimed godman Swami Nithyananda in Karnataka after the government ordered a probe into the allegations made against him recently. Meanwhile, there are reports in local channels that the godman is absconding.
The Karnataka government has also ordered to search the ashram premises of Nithyananda. Meanwhile, action has been taken by the Karnataka home department to cancel his bail as well. Nithyananda has been in the media glare recently after several female devotees accused the godman of rape and sexual abuse.
Last week saw a clash erupt between certain members of the press and certain Kannada organisations and ardent devotees of the godman. The row was on a complaint filed by a US-based woman alleging that the godman had sexually abused her for five years.
