Vyasaraja Math seer released on bail

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Head of the Sosale Vyasaraja Math Swami Vidya Manohara Theertha, who was arrested by the Andhra Pradesh police on Saturday and was released on bail, returned to the math near Gandhi Bazaar on Sunday.

The seer was arrested based on a private complaint in a Kadapa court relating to a cheque bounce case. After recording his attendance, the magistrate released him on conditional bail.

As soon as the seer returned to the math on Sunday, a large group of devotees and curious onlookers gathered on the spot where a sizeable police force was deployed to prevent any breach of law and order. Even as the seer spoke to the media and claimed that he had been falsely implicated by someone with vested interests, a section of the math's devotees demanded that he step down.

While the seer refused to step down, the devotees opposing his continuance came out of the meeting and announced that they would hold a protest against him at the math on Wednesday..
