The self proclaimed godman Nityananda will continue to be the inmate of the prison as his bail application is rejected by the Ramanagaram District Court.
Swami Paramahamsa Nityananda is facing charges of criminal acts like unnatural sex, cheating etc. The state CID police had arrested him last month and the Ramanagaram Civil Court has remanded him to judicial custody. Nityananda who once had thousands of followers throughout the world is now behind the bars at Ramanagaram District Prison. He had moved the Ramanagaram District Court for bail. But the district and sessions judge rejected his bail application on May 6,2010. Nityananda may now move Karnataka High Court for bail. Till then he will have to spend days meditating, reading books and eating food from his ashram.
