Chennai: Describing as "defamatory" video clippings pertaining to self-styled godman Sri Kalki Bhagawan telecast by TV channels, his ashram today told the Madras High Court his followers never consumed any narcotic substance.

E Lokeswara, administrator of a 'oneness campus' of the godman at Varadayapalem in Andhra Pradesh, in his affidavit said the video clippings pertained to 2003 and were stolen by some persons and transmitted without verifying from the organisation its veracity.

The dasajis (followers) reach various conscious levels and they forget their physical presence and danced with bliss and through devotional songs combined with Ayurvedic cleansing through rigorous fasting and 'Diksha.' This was being misrepresented by the clippings shown on television channels, he contended.

The court had on March 24 restrained nearly 30 private television channels of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu from telecasting the video clips that purportedly showed the dasajis and directed NKV Krishna, son of the godman, and a competent person from the ashram to file separate affidavits "highlighting, explaining, expounding and clarifying the scenes found in the video clips."
