The Crime Investigation Department (CID) of the Karnataka police on Monday sought information from the “victims” of self-styled godman Nityananda Swami against whom it has launched a probe.
The CID Superintendent of Police Yogappa,in a release here,said all those affected and the victims of Nityananda were free to contact him and depose. He said the travel expenses of those willing to depose before him and provide information would be met by the department and their identities kept in utmost secrecy.
The CID wing has been entrusted with the investigation into the allegations of sleazy activities by Nityananda,after Tamil Nadu police transferred the cases to Karnataka. Nityananda is at large since March 2 after a private television channel aired the video tapes of his alleged sleaze acts. The Karnataka High Court has rejected Nityananda’s plea for anticipatory bail and for quashing the cases filed against him.
