The self-styled godman and four associates others have been taken to Chandigarh by road under heavy security from where they will fly to Bangalore via Mumbai, Bhandari added.

32-year-old Nityananda and others were produced before Judicial Magistrate P S Samyal here last night who granted them four days transit remand. The HP CID will inquire as how the godman came here and his local contacts who helped him in hiding, he said.
