Swami Nithyananda brought to hospital for potency test

Self-styled god man Nityananda, who is facing criminal charges, including rape, has been brought to the Victoria hospital for a medical test to determine his potency levels as directed by the Supreme Court last week.

Nityananda is facing charges of rape, cheating, unnatural offences and criminal intimidation by some of his former devotees.

He was first arrested in Himachal Pradesh in 2010, but was later released on bail in the same year.

Nityananda is being tried in Bangalore and had earlier filed a writ petition in the Karnataka High Court seeking Rs.10 crore as damages to his ashram property from the state government.
