Legal Victory For Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda in Sriperumbudur
28 Nov 2016
The Hon'ble High Court of Madras in a hard hitting judgement quashed the case filed against Swami Nithyananda in 2010 alleging that he had hurt religious sentiments. The Court noted in his judgement that a private TV channel had telecast a false video footage alleged to be that of the petitioner and that the petitioner did not commit any offense punishable under law. He noted that "the compliant has been preferred without application of mind to the statutes, facts and materials". He further noted that prior sanction of the Government was not obtained as was required and also that the alleged offence has not been made out by the complaint.
This ruling from Monday is yet another in a series of victories for Paramahamsa Nithyananda against whom numerous frivolous and malicious cases were filed in 2010 after a morphed video of him was released by the controversial Chennai based private TV channel, SunTV. The COO of the channel Hansraj Saxena has since confessed to the morphing of the video and he and a number of his associates including Lenin Karuppan, Aarthi Rao and Nakeeran Gopal are on trial in Chennai for Criminal Intimidation (ipc 506), Extortion (385), Cheating (420), Illegal Confinement(342) and Robbery (392).
Attached is the order of the Hon'ble High Court of Madras quashing the false case against Swami Nithyananda.
