Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court on Thursday
adjourned hearing of the bail plea of self-styled godman
Nityananda Swami, arrested on criminal charges including rape,
to May 18.

Justice V B Pinto adjourned the hearing when the bail
plea came up before the vacation bench.

The Sessions court at Ramanagara, 40 km from here, had
yesterday extended Nityananda`s judicial custody to May 26.

Nityananda landed in a controversy in March after local
TV channels aired purported video footage showing him in a
compromising position with a Tamil actress. He was arrested
from Solan in Himachal Pradesh on April 21.
