High Court urged not to quash FIR against Nithyananda

Staff Reporter

Bangalore: Justice Ashok B. Hinchigeri on Tuesday directed members of local bodies to give representations to the State Government on their grievance relating to rotation of posts in the local bodies in Davangere district. The High Court asked the State Government to consider the representation of the petitioners within two days and pass orders as per the law. Till then, the court stayed the process of elections.

Stayed

Justice V. Jagannathan on Tuesday stayed the appointment of Narayana Chetty as Chairman of the Sociology Department of Bangalore University.

The court passed the order on a petition by Mylarappa. He claimed that the University Statute mandated that no person could hold two posts simultaneously.

Justice Jagannathan stayed the appointment for four weeks and adjourned further hearing of the case.

Adjourned

Justice C.R. Kumaraswamy adjourned further hearing of a criminal petition by godman Nithyananda seeking quashing of the first information report (FIR) and further proceedings against him.

The godman claimed that the Bidadi police had registered a case against him after his erstwhile driver Lenis lodged a complaint in a police station in Chennai.

The Chennai police transferred the case to Bidadi as his ashram is located near Bidadi. Subsequently, the CID took up investigation of the case against him.

He said the police had so far failed to find anything against him. He said the case against him is fabricated.

He urged the court to quash the FIR and further proceedings against him. On its part, the State opposed any quashing of the FIR. It said there is a case against the godman and last Saturday a charge-sheet was filed before a Magistrate court in Ramanagar.

It said there is a case against the godman and some of his devotees. It urged the court not to quash the FIR. Justice Kumaraswamy adjourned further hearing of the case to December 13, 2010.
