'Devotees incited to file false cases against informer'


In a September 4 application before the judicial magistrate’s court in Ramanagara, the CID has claimed that Nithyananda, who was released on conditional bail on June 11, incited a US-based devotee Anjula Jackson, wife of Hari Jackson of St Petersburg in Florida, to file a complaint against Karuppan in the same court on August 28.

In response to Jackson’s complaint, which the CID has described as baseless, frivolous and motivated, the agency defended Karuppan, claiming that he had not committed any offence as made out by the US-based person’s allegations.

In her complaint, Jackson said that Karuppan had violated Nithyananda’s privacy, trespassed the self-styled godman’s living quarters and defamed him.

After the CID moved the Ramanagara court, Nithyananda’s advocate moved a contempt petition against the investigating agency in the Karnataka High Court on September 14.
