The controversial godman who is currently in the custody of the Karnataka Criminal Investigative Department (CID) has asked the sleuths to conduct a potency test on him.
"I"m not a man. There"s no way I could have indulged in sexual activities with women. Do a potency test on me," the Times of India quoted Nithyananda as telling the CID officials.
However, the investigative officers chose to ignore the godman's startling claims as his passport clearly identifies him as a male and not as a transgender, the newspaper report said.
As of now, the CID is awaiting a report from the Forensic Science Laboratory, Hyderabad, on the authenticity of over 30 sex tapes showing Swami Nithyananda indulging in sexual activity with as many as five women.
Sources have revealed that the report is expected to reach Bangalore on Friday, Apr 30.
The latest claim by the 'sleazy' Swamiji seems to be another step taken by him to stall the judicial and investigative procedures. Earlier this week, he resorted to the time-tested method of complaining of health problems after which he was taken to the hospital.
