A sex scandal that rocked the country in 2010, is back to haunt controversial godman Swami Nithyananda. Seven years ago, a video that allegedly showed the godman in a compromising position with Tamil actress Ranjitha was aired by several Tamil channels.

However, the godman, nicknamed “Sex Swami,” and the actress, had both vehemently denied that they were part of the video. Ranjitha had claimed she is not the woman performing the act in the video. Swami Nithyananda had gone to court.

She had called a press conference and announced, “The video is fabricated. I am not the person in it. In fact, at that time, I was in a room that I was sharing with another female devotee in the Dhyanapeetham ashram. I blame myself for this. It has affected my career though some people still have faith in me.”

Ranjitha had then filed a case in a Bengaluru court, which ordered a CID investigation into the sex tape.

The Forensic Sciences Laboratory in Bengaluru [and the CID] had already confirmed that Nithyananda and Ranjitha indeed were the two people shown in the tape.

In 2012, Nithyananda had refuted the claim and said that four independent US-based experts had analysed the tape and concluded that the content was “fake” and “morphed”. He gave copies of the claimed US research reports to the Crime Investigation Department in Karnataka, which was investigating the case.

In the latest development in the notorious sex scandal, the Central Forensic Science Laboratory has confirmed that Nithyananda and Ranjitha are both present in the video, several Tamil websites reported.

Self-styled godman Nithyananda has filed a criminal complaint against Sun TV Chief Operating Officer (COO) Hansraj Saxena and eight others for airing what he termed morphed visuals, showing him in a compromising position with an actress.

In his complaint filed with city police commissionerate, Nithya Atmaprabhananda, Manager of Nithyananda’s Dhyanapeeta Charitable Trust, levelled charges including extortion, criminal intimidation and assault, among others, against Saxena, his aide Ayyappan and Tamil bi-weekly Nakheeran Editor R. Gopal, among others.

Atmaprabhananda alleged that they had demanded money to stop airing the video footage purportedly showing Nithyananda and Ranjitha. He also charged that he had been attacked by Aiyappan.

Ranjitha had also filed a complaint back in 2011, alleging her pictures were morphed and that some persons had demanded money from her to stop airing the video. The original video was then sent to the central forensic sciences lab in Delhi for ascertaining whether it was tampered with. – India Today, 22 November 2017

The controversial video has been taken down allegedly by Nithyananda or by his representatives who have claimed copyright infringement—and thereby admitted the authenticity of the video’s contents!—and by bringing lawsuits against Sun TV, Nakheeran magazine, and others. The lawsuits are still pending.

Nithyananda & Malhotra

Rajiv Malhotra and other Hindu intellectuals and activists viciously attacked this website administrator for publishing news and articles critical of Nithyananda’s conduct. This administrator now stands vindicated by the CFSL findings!
