Ramanagara: A local court today rejected the bail application of self-styled godman Nityananda Swami embroiled in an alleged sex scandal.

Ramanagara Sessions Court Judge C G Hugund rejected Nityananda's bail plea considering the "seriousness and magnitude of the charges against him".

Nityananda, who was arrested in Solan in Himachal Pradesh on April 21 on criminal charges including rape, was remanded to judicial custody till May 13 by the same court on April 30.

The self-styled godman landed in a controversy in March after TV channels aired video footage purportedly showing him in an objectionable position with a Tamil actress.
