CID moves to SC regarding Nithyananda sex scam

Bangalore, Sep 15: CID moved to Supreme Court after facing lots of problems in investigating Nithyananda's sex scandal case as High Court ordered in an early petition to complete the inquiry within four weeks from Jul 17, 2010.

"We are in trouble," said a CID official and added, "If the SC fails to come to our help, we are going to be embarrassed."

CID has alleged Nithyananda, who is now out on bail after serving a jail term as an undertrial, in the case under sections 376, 377, 506, and 295 (A) respectively, for rape, having unnatural sex, threatening to kill and hurting religious sentiments.

However, CID didn't have a concrete case against the accused except a police complaint filed by Lenin Kurpuppan, an estranged disciple, who accused Nithyananda of having sex with a male disciple.

On the other side, the counsel of the accused has pleaded the court for quashing the charges.
