Police suspect plaint against Lenin false

The police suspect that the “complaint” by the devotee, A Pushpa, alias Supriyananda, could be an “instrument” to malign Lenin who, in a sting operation, had exposed Nithyananda’s romp with a Tamil actress.

The police’s suspicion stems from the very contents of the complaint according to which Lenin allegedly threatened Supriyananda while she “was walking towards the bus stop on the Bangalore-Mysore highway along” with two other Nithyananda devotees “at about 8 am” on December 30.

When the police tried to verify Lenin’s location, they found that he was in Chennai and not present in Bangalore or anywhere near Nithyananda’s Bidadi ashram over the past seven days.

 The police officer who Supriyananda spoke to called up Lenin and satisfied himself that he was actually in Chennai. Sources close to Lenin in Chennai told Deccan Herald that he was aware of Supriyananda’s “petition” and that he was contemplating filing a defamation suit against the devotee.

This forced the police to treat the complaint as a petition in which Supriyananda, originally from Kadalur district in Tamil Nadu, alleged that Lenin tried to molest and rape her a “couple of days after Guru Poornima” some time in July 2009. According to Supriyananda’s statement, a copy of which is available with Deccan Herald, Lenin allegedly took photographs of her in the nude on his cell phone.

The next evening, Supriyananda’s statement says, Lenin “showed” her the “pictures on his cell phone and warned me not to disclose the previous day’s incidence”. She claimed she “could not file this complaint earlier” because she was “fear stricken”.
