A Trial Court in Ramanagara has issued a Non Bailable Warrant (NBW) today against the self-styled Godman Nithyananda and further stated that the personal bond executed by him stands "forfeited". (Bidadi Police V. Paramahamsa Nithyanandaswamy @ Rajashekaran)

In this regard, the order passed by III Additional District and Sessions Judge reads,

That the personal bond executed by accused No.1 is hereby forfeited and office to issue NBW as against accused No.1 besides registering a separate case for recovery of personal bond amount as against A1. In the meanwhile, post this matter on regular date i.e., on 04.03.2020.

Ramanagara Court order

The Karnataka CID had moved an application before Ramanagara Trial Court in the wake of the order passed by the High Court which cancelled Nithyananda's bail earlier this month. The CID had further prayed to issue NBW against Nithyananda so as to procure him before the trial court. It is reported that Nithyananda is suspected to have fled the country dodging the security agencies of the country.

The case has been posted next in the lower Court on March 4.
