The particular program has also been completely video-recorded and proves this allegation to be false. Interestingly, in 2008 also Nakkeeran had published a similar defamatory article for which he later printed a public apology.
|3||19-Mar-2010||4||Netrikann||Udal uravum oru yoga thaan||Physical relationship is also a yoga||The whole article is a fabrication. It is purportedly an interview with Ragasudha, a former Tamil actress. The said actress has clarified that she never gave any such interview.|

Nithya’s sketch to close everything and escape to Nepal. Went to Himalayas with 30 disciples. Nithya sent everyone’s passports back through travel agents. Travel agent Krushiki was caught in Delhi. Chance of getting arrested when he comes back from Manasasarovar. Nithya did not come for gender verification. Court said not to give bail. Possibility of issuing arrest warrant. Nithya is absconding from last 15 days.
Nithyananda planned to escape to Nepal to runaway from cases and tests. He planned to move to Nepal. He went on Himalaya trip with Ranjitha and 30 more devotees.
Looks like their passports were seized by the police in Delhi airport from a travel agent. Looks like there are bright chances of arresting him when he comes back.
More details from Vasundhara from Chennai.
Nithyananda, who is trapped in many issues.
