Bidadi, Mar 11: Tiruchi police has reportedly received a complaint from a couple alleging that their son had been forcibly held at Swami Nithyananda's ashram at Bidadi.
According to a Times News Network report, a police inspector from Tiruchi landed at Bidadi police station on Wednesday, Mar 10 looking for a youth from Tiruchi.
"It all depends on what the boy wants to do. He can either go with his parents or stay back. We are only assisting the Tiruchi police," police sources are quoted as saying.
This comes amid the raging controversy over a sex scandal involving the godman. A scandalous video of the Swamiji in a compromising position with a Tamil actress Ranjitha surfaced last week, giving raise to a lot more allegations against the spiritual guru.
As the media dug deep to find more dirt on Nityananda, it was alleged that human right violations and sexual abuse took place in the ashram.
Apart from the reports of two people held forcibly in the ashram, there are reports that a Canadian devotee died in the ashram under mysterious circumstances.
The ashram authorities, however, have brushed aside all these allegations.
