AHMEDABAD: The Interpol has issued a Blue Corner Notice to locate self-styled godman Nithyananda, who fled India last year after a rape case was registered against him in Karnataka, Gujarat Police said on Wednesday.

The state police revealed the move in a charge sheet filed in a local court in connection with an FIR lodged against Nithyananda in November last year, after two girls went missing from his ashram here.

"The Interpol issued the Blue Corner notice against the controversial godman this month," Deputy Superintendent of Police K T Kamariya told PTI.

The police said they were working that a Red Corner Notice be issued by the Interpol against him now.

Nithyananda was earlier declared wanted by the Gujarat Police.

A Blue Corner notice is issued to locate or obtain information about a person in a criminal investigation, while a Red Corner notice is issued to seek arrest of a wanted person.

    A fake case fabricated and is being pedalled by media for last 10 years. Karnataka CID has given in writtent (Affidavit) to High Court that don't have any one so called as rape accused. Want to demolish all HINDU GURUS. This is what media in India is good at. Not even one media is ready to see the court ruling and facts clearly. Modi was demonised by media for 15 Year - Became Great Leader for world. Same is happening with Nithyananda - He will become Vishwa Guru. Anyone which large media houses are targetting for a long time
