HC allows Nityananda`s petition
Chennai: The Madras High Court today
allowed a plea by self-styled godman Nityananda seeking to
permit him to implead himself in a writ petition that sought a
CBI inquiry into a complaint against him.
In his order, Justice K B K Vasuki said the godman was
a necessary party for the effective disposal of the writ
petition and hence his plea was being allowed.
In his petition, Nityananda said the high court had
ordered notice to him on the writ petition. He said on March
2, a private television channel telecast a false video footage
in which he was allegedly found in close company with a woman
Ranjitha, who was his devotee and a film actor.
Nityananda said he did not commit any offence as
punishable under the law. In order to gain tweet publicity,
several persons had filed complaints against him with vague
allegations, including the writ petitioner R Karthikeyan of
Vadapalani in Chennai, the godman said.
The writ petition had been filed for CBI investigation
for various fictitious, frivolous, false and motivated
allegations, Nityananda said in his petition.
The writ petitioner had filed multiple cases against
him to get an order from the high court without even
impleading him as party respondent in the litigation. This
approach by the writ petitioner would clearly show lack of
bonafides while approaching the court, Nityananda said.
