Ranjitha, who was alleged to have been filmed in a compromising position with self-styled Godman Nithyananda, today filed a complaint with police.
The Karnataka High Court ordered emergent notice to the government and the media in connection with a petition filed by Tamil actress Ranjitha
Swami Nithyananda confessed that a journalist allegedly took Rs 10 crore as ransom from one of his followers that he would not make the CD public.
Forensic reports state that Ranjitha was indeed part of the Swami Nithyananda sex video, even as she has claimed all along that it was not her.
Controversial godman Nithyananda held a press conference at his ashram near Bangalore today where he claimed that the sex scandal he is accused of is a case of "religious persecution." Last year, several channels in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu aired a video that they claimed showed Nithyananda in a compromising position with Tamil actor Ranjitha. He was granted bail in June last year after being arrested on charges that include rape and intimidation.
