CD featuring Nithyananda and me morphed: Ranjitha

According to the complaint against Lenin Karuppan, whose secretly videographed romp between Nithyananda and Ranjitha was televised by news channels on March 2 this year, the “morphed video” was used to “blackmail and extort money” from her.

In this context, the complaint — a copy of which is with Deccan Herald — says that in “furtherance of a conspiracy” Lenin “created a video with a man resembling Shree Nithyananda Swami and a woman having intimate relationship with him”.

Police sources said Ranjitha’s complaint appeared to be a concerted effort to deny scientific evidence in the form of tests on the CD by the Hyderabad-based Forensics Science Laboratory. The FSL report had categorically concluded the CD was genuine.
Actor avoided police

Ranjitha’s complaint comes six months after she gave a statement to the Karnataka CID, which is investigating charges of rape and other sexual offences made against Nithyananda by Lenin.

 After the scandal involving Nithyananda and Ranjitha went public, she avoided the police and officers had to travel to Chennai to record her statement in which too she had denied being the woman featured in the CD.

When contacted, Lenin reacted saying Ranjitha’s complaint was false. “Everything in that complaint is false and I will take appropriate legal steps in the days to come,” Lenin said.

The actress’ complaint recounts how Lenin would allegedly “pursue the complainant by unnecessarily coming and stationing himself near her and stare at her awkwardly”. It says that on February 13, 2010, Lenin, to her “shock and disbelief”, showed her poorly shot videos of his molestation of two Brahmacharinis on his laptop”.

Without mentioning a date, the complaint suggests that Lenin allegedly tried to molest and rape Ranjitha at the Bidadi ashram and subsequently tried to blackmail her by demanding Rs 2 crore.
