On wednesday morning a mob attacked the entrance of the ashram, pelting stones and pulling down banners and hoardings of the Swamiji, setting them a blaze. They tore the godman's portraits and damaged the decorative lamps at the ashram's gates, which were closed. Also fire broke out around 4.30 p.m. in the huts which are in the campus if the ashram. A police force of at least 150 personnel was deputed to the ashram and senior officials, including Ramanagara District Superintendent S.B. Bisanahalli, were around. Entry was strictly prohibited and barring the sevakas (volunteers) there were no strangers inside the ashram. It was in the middle of this that the fire broke out. So police doubt whether it was done to burn some important evidences.
Ranjeetha and rakshitha were the main actress involved in the scandal. Also some sources say another famous heroine with starting letter 'yu' was involved in this matter. The nithyanandar statue in tiruvanamalai was broken into pieces by the angry mob and forest dept had found some 50 to 60 kgs of sandal wood trees in the ashram and also searching for tiger skin as it was rumoured that swamiji slept on tiger skin. Also it is rumoured that swami escaped to the himalayas. The hindu forward leader strictly said that they wont leave nithyananda to enter the tiruvanamalai district. The ashram is located on a 50-acre plot. The swamiji was in talks with real estate agents and farmers to acquire 500 acres near Bidadi and Ramnagaram to expand his ashram.
The Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam's website, meanwhile, termed the video “defamatory”, claiming that it is “a mix of conspiracy, graphics and rumour”. It said the organisation was contemplating legal recourse.
