A fresh case has been filed against the self-styled godman Nityananda in the United States for sexually exploiting and duping the devotees. Reports say that a case has been filed with California State Attorney General against the godman by Douglas McKellor, an American national, who claims to be Nityananda’s ex-disciple. McKellor has accused Nityananda, who was purportedly caught in a sleazy video footage, of sexually exploiting the devotees at the ashram, of committing fraud and financial irregularities. McKeller, a resident of San Jose in California, came in contact with Nityananda in 2007, changed his name to Swami Nityaprabha and later became the head of the California branch of Dhyanapeetham. McKeller, in his complaint accused Nityananda of drugging him. “It was at the Los Angeles ashram in June 2007, where I paid Swami a fee of $400,000 for the workshop. During the workshop, I felt abnormally light-headed.” he said.
