Even as self-styled godman Nithyananda got anticipatory bail in two cases from Ramanagaram Judicial Magistrate First Class court on Thursday, he was remanded in judicial custody for one day by the District Magistrate court on charges of breach of peace. He was shifted to Mysore jail amid tight police security.

Inspector General of Police (Internal Security) Bhaskar Rao confirmed to Express that Nithyananda was remanded in judicial custody and is being shifted to Mysore jail for security reasons. “Today, we had deployed over 600 police personnel inside the  court. We cannot risk keeping him in the Ramanagaram sub-jail for security reasons. Nithyananda will not be  produced before the DC’s court on Friday. He has been booked under Sec 151 and 107 of CrPC,” Bhaskar Rao said.

Even as the media tried to trail him, he was whisked away to the DC’s office. There, after being tried on charges of hampering law and order, he was remanded in custody and detained for more than two hours.

On Wednesday, the Ramanagaram police arrested Nithyananda and eight others based on complaints by a local TV reporter and activists of a local group Nava Nirmana Sene on June 8 for allegedly assaulting them at his ashram. While the eight got bail, Nityananda was produced before the JMFC on Thursday, where he was granted bail.

“The court has heard the matter and granted bail to Nithyananda. He has furnished one surety and personal bond of Rs 50,000 in both cases. All the offences against him were bailable. The court has instructed to put a case only after the final report is submitted,” said C Mohan, Public Prosecutor.
