Highlights
  • A sleaze video tape of Nithyananda swami with a Tamil actress had gone viral in 2010
  • Then, the Godman had denied that it was him in the video and even claimed that the tape was morphed
  • After seven years, a Delhi-based FSL has ascertained his identity

In a major setback to Nithyananda swami - a self-styled godman - a Delhi-based Forensic Science Laboratory has ascertained that the person in the sleaze video was indeed, Nithyananda.  The sleaze video of Nithyananda sharing an intimate physical relationship with an actress from Tamil Nadu had gone viral in 2010, reports Suvarna News.

It may be recalled here that the petitioner who had filed a rape case against the Godman was one of Nithyananda's aides, Lenin Kuruppan. Lenin had secretly shot the video and had lodged a complaint with Tamil Nadu police. He had shot the video to expose the seer's misdeeds.

The case was transferred to Ramnagara police as Bidadi - where Nityananda has built his ashram - comes under their jurisdiction. Back then, Nithyananda had rubbished the reports of sleaze video and even denied him in the video, claiming video was morphed to tarnish his reputation.

However, with the FSL ascertaining Nithyananda's identity in the CD, the self-styled Godman is in docks, again.
