A farmer from Thanjavur has appealed to Madurai Vilakkuthun police to rescue his son from Nithayananda’s custody.

Tirupathi from Poyyandarkottai village, who is also the general secretary of Thanjavur District Sugarcane Growers Association, filed a complaint at Vilakkothoon police station on Wednesday.

He claimed that his son Raghavan, 27, an engineering graduate is in Nithyananda’s custody at Madurai Aadheenam.

He requested the police to rescue his son and hand over him to the family.

Tirupathi told Express that Raghavan was supposed to go to Singapore for some lessons. However, Tirupathi came to know that Raghavan has joined the Nithyananda Dhyanapeetham.

Raghavan refused to return home even after several attempts by his father to convince him.

Meanwhile, when Tirupathi heard Raghavan was in Madurai Aadheenam, he came down to Madurai last week and met his son. Raghavan refused to go back with Tirupathi.

On Wednesday, he came again to Madurai with his wife Pooranam and other relatives to convince Raghavan to return home.

As Raghavan refused to return with his parents, Tiurpathi filed a complaint at police station.

“I will also file a case against Nithyananda,” Tirupathi said.
