A sessions court on Friday posted to April 12 the hearing of anticipatory bail application of self-styled godman Nityananda Swami, embroiled in a sex scandal.
When the matter came up, Judge Hungund of Ramanagaram Sessions Court near Bangalore adjourned the hearing to April 12.
Nityananda is facing criminal charges, including rape.
In a related development, Karnataka High Court has adjourned hearing of Nityananda’s petition praying for quashing of the criminal cases filed against him to April 15.
The high court had last month rejected his plea for anticipatory bail following which he quit as the head of his ashram in Bidadi near here and all the other trusts associated with him saying he would be in a “spiritual seclusion”.
The whereabouts of Nityananda “are still not known”, police said.
All efforts to trace him were being made by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), entrusted with the probe into the cases, they said.
