Judicial Magistrate First Class issued the summons on a petition filed by Anjula Jackson, a woman devotee of Nityananda.

Karuppanan, also Nityananda's ex-driver, was responsible for blowing the lid off the scandal leading to the self-styled godman's arrest seven months ago.

He is to be produced before court on January 15. Nityananda landed in controversy in March after a local television channel aired a purported video footage showing him in a compromising position with a Tamil actress.

He was subsequently arrested in Solan district in Himachal Pradesh on April 21 and granted conditional bail on June 11.
