Three minor girls were allegedly sexually abused in Mysore city by a yoga instructor, police said.

Radha, a native of Nepal, was married to Suresh Bahadur 18 years ago, and the couple have three daughters Kavya (16), Navya (14) and Cauvery (11) (all names changed). After Bahadur’s death nine years ago, Radha became friendly with Kiran, a manager and instructor at a yoga centre in Gokulam, and they were in a live-in relationship.

According to the police, Radha used to frequent  spiritual camps. In her absence Kiran (33) used to repeatedly sexually abuse her three daughters. When Radha realised what was going on, she  approached Odanadi, an NGO. As the victims are minors, Odanadi lodged a compliant with the Child Welfare Committee (CWC), who lodged a complaint with the N R Police. They have urged the police to take immediate action as the accused has confessed to his crime.

CWC member Venkatesh said that the victims have given a statement against Kiran. He said that Police Commissioner K L Sudhir has assured suitable legal action.  Inspector Dananjaya of N R station said an FIR has been filed against Kiran.
