Bangalore, May 1: The walls are closing in on Swami Nithyananda as the much-awaited report from the Hyderbad forensic lab has established that the man seen in the sex tape was in deed the godman from Karnataka.
The Karanataka Criminal Investigation Department (CID), which is probing into the criminal cases slapped against Nithyananda following the leak of a sex tape, has been waiting for the confirmation from the forensic science laboratory in Hyderabad to nail the Swamiji, who has been denying all the charges.
As per inputs, the forensic lab has confirmed the authenticity of the sleaze tape showing the Nithyanada's sexual romp allegedly with Tamil actress Ranjitha.
This report puts an end to the tiring arguments of the godman that his image was morphed into the tape and that he was a victim of a conspiracy.
As many as 30 sex tapes showing the godman indulging in sexual activity with at least five women were submitted to the CID by Nithyananda's associate Lenin Kurupan, who plotted the whole thing to expose Nithyanada's activities.
Now, the CID is trying to get hold of Ranjitha for interrogation. Two months after the sleaze tape hit the media, the actress on Apr 30 claimed that she is not the woman in the sex tape and has slapped legal notices on Google and Youtube seeking removal of the videos.
Since Nithyananda's police custody ended on Friday, Apr 30, a court in Ramanagara in Bangalore sent the godman to judicial custody till May 12.
