Ramanagaram: A local court on Monday posted
for orders on May six the bail plea of self-styled godman
Nityananda swami, arrested on criminal charges including rape.

When the bail application came up, Sessions court Judge
Hungund heard the petitioner`s counsel and the Public
prosecutor and posted it for orders on Thursday.

Nityananda was remanded to judicial custody till May 12 by
the Court after the expiry of his police custody on April 30.

The self-styled godman landed in a controversy in March
after TV channels telecast purported video footage showing
him in a compromising position with a Tamil actress.

He was arrested at Solan in Himachal Pradesh on April
21,ending his more than a month-long elusive run.
