Nityananda was interrogated by police on Friday as new evidence surfaced that the self-styled god-man had made his disciples to sign non-disclosure agreement about sexual acts.
The 32-year-old Nityananda was in hide since March 3 after a video showing him in bed with actress ranjitha was telecasted and was arrested in Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday, 21 April 2010. He was sent to police custody for four days late on Thursday by a judicial magistrate in Ramanagara.
He was brought before the court in Ramanagara as he has an ashram in Bidadi, about 30 km from here, in Ramanagara district.
A youth hurled a footwear at Nityananda as he was coming out of the residence of the magistrate. It hit Nityananda on his legs, and the attacker was arrested.
Reports soon after the telecast of the video of Nityananda’s sex romp said he had tried to secure himself from any legal action by making his devotees sign papers agreeing to sexual acts as part of rituals to attain enlightenment.
The agreement, copies of which have been accessed by media, states among other things that a volunteer understands that the programme “may involve the learning and practice of ancient tantric secrets associated with male and female ecstasy, including the use of sexual energy for increased intimacy/spiritual connection, pleasure, harmony and freedom”.
Bangalore police said they have been receiving several complaints of sexual exploitation and cheating after the scandal broke out and police appealed to people to come forward with information.
“It will be a long legal battle. We are verifying the information reaching us from several places and confronting Nityananda with it to know the scale of his illegal and immoral activities,” a police spokesperson said
