Two Nitya disciples offer to undergo narco-analysis test
Bangalore: Rejecting all allegations against
controversial self-styled godman Nityananda, two of his
disciples, who are co-accused in the chargesheet against him,
on Saturday volunteered to undertake Narco-analysis test, saying
they want the truth to prevail.
Nitya Bhaktananda and Nitya Sachitananda also challenged
Lenin Karuppan, who had exposed the alleged sex scandal by
releasing a secretly-recorded video, as also the "so-called
victims and witnesses" to undergo such a test.
"Let the truth come out. We have nothing to hide," they
told reporters here as they expressed distress over "so many
allegations, hearsay, so much of information and all kinds of
Nityananda and four of his associates, including
Bhaktananda and Sachitandanda, have been accused of rape and
unnatural sex in a chargesheet filed in a court by the
Criminal Investigation Department on November 27.
Bhaktananda sought to brush aside a question whether
Nityananda, who is embroiled in the sex scandal, would also
undergo narco-analysis test.
"He (Nityananda) is beyond all this. It`s inhuman and
insensitive to even talk about it (subjecting Nityanada to
narco test). First do it (the test) with us. Swamji
(Nityananda) is beyond the comprehension of anybody," he said.
Lenin, a former key aide of Nityananda, had on December 9
alleged the self-styled godman was threatening witnesses,
including him, and victims of his "sleaze activities".
He had also claimed many ex-devotees had realised the
"truth" about Nityananda and left him after the scandal but
were afraid of testifying against the godman because of
"continuing threats and pressure".
Nityananda was arrested from Himachal Pradesh in April
last after TV channels telecast visuals showing him in a
compromising position with an actress.
