Mr. A.C. Narendran, a devotee of Paramahamsa Nithyananda, filed a complaint which was registered as an FIR at the High Grounds Police Station in Cr. No. 0081/2013, against Vishweshwara Bhatta, Chief Editor at Suvarna News; Ranganath Bharadwaj, News Editor at Suvarna News; Ajit Hanumakkanavar, Crime Reporter at Suvarna News; and others.
This FIR has been registered for serious offences u/s 153, 295(A), 298, 107, 506 (B), 120 B, 34 of IPC, leading to breach of peace by provoking one sect of people against another.
This crime is a continuation of the vengeful onslaught of Suvarna TV on Paramahamsa Nithyananda, the most recent one being an open, blatant show of violence on a panel discussion where the panellist wielding a chopper openly issued a threat to life to Paramahamsa Nithyananda and His followers.
