23 February 2010
In Chennai, on 23 February 2010, Sri Nithya Bhaktananda, Sri Nithya Sadananda, and Sri Nithya Pranananda met advocate Sridhar. Sridhar declared that Lenin and his aides were demanding 100 crores INR to stop them from airing the morphed images. The Administrators were shell-shocked and realised there were much bigger sharks behind the scenes. They declared that they don’t have that kind of money and also requested that Lenin and Aarthi Rao should be present and that they will discuss directly with them. Sridhar replied that if an initial amount is given to the, they will come directly. Further the administrators requested that they should come with the original chips containing the images which they had created, which Sridhar refused to accept.
Sridhar discussed further and came back for a second round of discussion. He next quoted 60 crores and the handing over of two identified properties belonging to the Aadheenam – one in Hyderabad and one in Chennai. He started threatening saying that if things are delayed, the images will be released to the public.
