Bengaluru: Sexual Assault Case – Court Orders Swamiji’s Presence during Hearing

Bengaluru: The first additional chief metropolitan magistrate court on Thursday issued a summons to Shri Raghaveshwara Bharati Swamiji to appear before it in person.


This is in connection with the case filed against him based on charges of sexual assault levelled against him by a former Ramakatha vocalist. The Swamiji has already obtained an anticipatory bail in the same case.

In the meantime, the state CID which is investigating the case, has appealed to the court to cancel the bail, since the Swamiji had not cooperated with it by refusing to undergo medical tests and also had allegedly threatened the witnesses.

Special public prosecutor B A Belliappa on Monday submitted the application for the cancellation of the bail. The accused had been asked to appear for a medical test on Sep 30 but he failed to turn up.

  1. Dear readers,

    What is the difference between ‘Nirbhaya’ rape in moving bus and cow loving swami raping women disciple?

    Why there is preferential treatment for the accused,whose DNA match is established with case by forensic lab? Is saffron robe is being considered immune to prosecute the culprit in the constitution of India?

    Where are those BJP women wing and ABVP, who are protesting every street side incident and politicising the issues?

    Why the state opposition BJP is mum on this entire issue and not demanding arrest of the rape accuse?

    Is Indian Judiciary who worked overnight first time in the history of India to reward Yakub Memon death penalty,is taking so long to arrest the rape accuse?

    Jai hind
