Dayananda Swami, seer of Maddevanapura Mutt in Hunasemaranahalli, accused of being found in compromising position with alleged Kannada actress has disclosed the names of those who had made the sleazy video.
The seer who was in hiding after the video became viral has come out in the open now. Surprisingly, he did not say that the video was morphed, but revealed the names of three members of his family and alleged that they were extorting money from him on the basis of this video.
Dayananda Swami has said that one of the devotees of the Mutt Mahesh, Basavaraj and his relative Himachala were behind shooting the video. The seer also alleged that they have extorted lakhs of rupees from him.
He has said that Rs 85 lakh has been paid to the blackmailers so far. The seer is also accused of selling the Mutt land and making money out of it.
However, the three accused have refuted the charges and said they have no role in the making of the CD. The seer is all set to file a complaint against the three, say sources.
Meanwhile, the actress named in the sex CD has refuted the charges and said that the video had been morphed and it was not her in the sex tape. After her name was taken out in public, the reports said that she even attempted suicide.
In a video, Seer came and said that "I am ready to face any punishment if I'm proved guilty. But I also want those people who blackmailed me to be punished. We have all done wrong. Let us face it now."
