Bangalore: The CID sleuths have issued a notice to self-styled god-man Nithyananda to appear for medical tests on July 30, in connection with a 2010 rape case. The tests will be crucial, as during interrogations in the past, he had claimed he was “not a man”. Backed with a Ramanagaram CJM Court order issued on June 20, the CID police sent a notice to Nithyananda earlier this week.
“A panel of several medical experts will test him for a final and conclusive report to determine if he is potent or impotent. If the report comes out positive, Nithyananda will be in a fix, and if it comes out negative, he will be safe as charges against him will be considered as false,” CID sources said.
In the notice, the police asked Nithyananda to be present at the CID headquarters, from where he will be taken to Victoria Hospital. He will undergo a series of tests and the investigation would proceed based on the final report, sources said. “The doctors have confirmed the date and the names of the doctors on the panel, who will carry out the tests. However, details of the tests will be kept confidential,” sources added.
CID issued a notice to the self-styled god-man to appear for medical tests in connection with a 2010 rape case.
Although his one-time confidante Lenin Karuppan had filed a rape case against Nithyananda in 2010, the latter refuted the charges, claiming that he was not a man and could not involve in intercourse. Though the officials had earlier issued notices to him to appear for medical and voice tests, he had not turned up, forcing the officials to approach the court for a suitable order.
The Ramanagaram CJM Court directed the god-man to undergo medical and voice analysis tests and co-operate with the investigations. Following the court directive, the CID sleuths had written to Victoria Hospital to constitute a medical board consisting several experts and not one, to avoid any controversies on the report.
