Kuala Lumpur: An ashram in Malaysia has halted all its activities after an alleged sex scandal
involving its founder Swami Paramahamsa Nityanand broke out in India, a spokesman of the institution has said.

K Murthi, the spokesman, said the Indian swami had visited the Gombak centre only a few times and that it had conducted only a few activities there in a month.

He noted all the activities in the Gombak centre had come to a halt since the sex scandal broke out in India involving the swami.
The ashram has agreed to cooperate with the Indian police probing the alleged sex scandal involving Nityanand.

A spokesman for the Nityanand Dhyanapeetam ashram in Taman Desa Gombak, near here, said he did not know how the Indian police could link the ashram`s activities with the sex scandal as the activities at the centre here were purely spiritual in nature.
