Case registered against Nithyananda, 2 others

June 22, 2012 20:06 IST

The police on Friday informed the Madras high court bench they had registered a case against controversial self styled godman Nithyananda and two others for allegedly providing devotees holy water mixed with drugs at the Adheenam in Madurai.

When the case came up for hearing before Justice A Selvam on Friday, the government advocate said police had registered case under relevant sections against Nithyanandha and two others on a complaint by petitioner M Solaikannan of Hindu Makkal Katchi that a case had not been registered.

Solaikannnan said he had filed the petition as police had not acted on his complaint to test the nature of the water given to the devotees and to take necessary action.
