Nityananda was trapped by `waves from heaven’

It all started as a small blip on the investigators’ radar. It was a cell phone that ultimately led the police to a remote village in Himachal Pradesh where self-styled godman Nityananda Paramahamsa – the swamy who was caught on tape romping with women in his ashram – was holed up.

Nityananda was trapped by `waves from heaven’

Bangalore/Shimla: Self-styled godman Nityananda Paramahamsa had the habit of looking up for inspiration during his spiritual discourses. Well, it was the `waves' travelling through his heavens that helped a joint team comprising sleuths of Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh track the `swami' to a remote village called Shivshankargarh in Himachal Pradesh.

Sources in the police in Bangalore said that a team from Karnataka had been camping in Himachal Pradesh trying to locate Nityananda. Soon after the scandal broke out, he was found at the Kumbh in Allahabad, but with the cases becoming murkier and the police in hot pursuit, he managed to disappear.

The HP police were requested to keep a close tab on the airwaves as Nityananda was in touch with his disciples in India and the US amidst rumours that he may try to flee India.

While scanning the cell call details, the police were intrigued at the number of cell phone calls from Shivshankargarh - a very remote village. All the calls were of short duration. It was then that the police started keeping a close track of the area and commenced monitoring the calls.
