11 January 2015:
Over 6 years passed with injustice in the unfair trails that prevented the witnesses and involved parties to be left out by the vested interests in the police.
Finally in January 2015, Hon’ble High Court of Madras ordered for further, thorough fair investigation into the conspiracy of making the infamous ‘morphed video’ and all the criminals involved to be summoned to the court. This morphed video was the main instrument used by the criminal conspirators to effect, what has now become a decade long religious, ethnical and inhumane persecution of His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda and his followers.
To decisively end this unfair trial, the petition was filed by Ms.Ranjitha, whose morphed photographs with His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda were published in certain media as a part of bigger conspiracy by media houses and individual criminals.
In her petition before the Hon’ble High Court, Ms. Ranjitha had expressed her grievance on some of the key accused persons, including Kalanidhi Maran (Sun TV executive), RMR Ramesh (Dinakaran executive) among others, being left out by the police in their investigation report.
During previous lower court sessions, vested interests in the police prevented more witnesses and involved parties to be called. With justice prevailing, the High Court ordered that all parties should be called in the falling order .
The High Court in its ruling stated,
“…the Trial Court to go through the entire final report along with accompanying documents and if the Trial Court finds that the police have left out some person as accused, the Trial Court has power to summon them at the stage of taking cognizance….if offence surfaces during the course of trial, then, at that stage also, the Trial Court can invoke Section 319 Cr.P.C. and implead persons as accused.”
“…direction to the Trial Court to go through the entire final report and accompanying documents and if it finds out that some persons have been left out from the array of accused, it is open to the Trial Court to issue process to such persons. That apart, it is also open to the Trial Court to invoke its provisions under Section 319 Cr.P.C. if offences appear during the course of trial against the said persons.”
