Over 200 phone calls of sexual nature are recorded between Vinay and the minor Sahiti, many of which were happening late at night, where he tried to cheat her with false ideas about sex and Hinduism. These recordings were irrefutable evidence in the court, and were used to convict Vinay beyond any doubt.
“In February of 2009 I had just turned 13, but it was this year that would be forever ingrained in my head as the year that I was sexually abused and raped by Vinay Bharadwaj. Vinay called me on the phone at least 200 times. Many of the phone calls were happening late at night and it’s embarrassing to talk about what we had talked about….. to share how gullible I was and how obviously I was so innocent. But it took me a long time to stop blaming myself and understand that he was the one manipulating me. He was the one planting ideas into my head.”
“He taught me that the entire Hinduism is in worshipping the cosmic union between male and female and he associated enlightenment with sex and told me that orgasms were powerful paths to enlightenment.”
“He asked me to read about Tantric practices. He twisted and turned around the truths of Hinduism just to justify his sick desire. And I didn’t know this then, but it was a far more bigger reason (his plans of conspiracy to make Sahiti a false victim in false rape case on Paramahamsa Nithyananda).”
