Supreme Court stays start of trial proceedings against Swami Nithyananda
28 February 2017
In a major victory for Swami Nithyananda, the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India on 6 February 2017 stayed the start of trial proceedings in the false case filed by Lenin Karuppan in 2010 against Swami Nithyananda.
Delivering the judgment in a packed Court hall, the Hon'ble Court said that it arrived at this extreme step noting that a number of significant documents favouring Swami Nithyananda had been wantonly suppressed by the investigating authorities and that proceeding with the trial without these critical evidences would be unjust.
As a part of a major conspiracy against Swami Nithyananda, Lenin Karuppan abetted by his associates had filed the false case against Swami Nithyananda in 2010.
This ruling marks a series of judgments in favour of Swami Nithyananda by various Courts of India. The Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka had earlier quashed the cases filed against Swami Nithyananda in 2012 by some vested elements. A few weeks ago, the Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka further ordered the investigating authorities to submit all the evidences found favoring Swami Nithyananda in their investigations.
These evidences include the medical reports of the alleged rape victim Ms. Arathi Rao from 2004 to 2009 showing she has had 4 highly contagious and incurable STDs some of which are transmitted by mere touch, her own email admission in mid-2009 six months after her last alleged instance of rape that she never had any kind of sexual relationship with Swami Nithyananda, multiple proofs of discrepancies in the dates and locations of the alleged rape incidents, Swami Nithyananda’s medical reports showing he has never had any STDs and has a yogic body and not capable of a sexual act.
Lenin Karuppan and Arathi Rao are currently facing prosecution for the blackmail, extortion and criminal conspiracy by them against Swami Nithyananda in the trial Court in Chennai.
