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.
