In an unexpected move, Nithyananda has raised objections to the original suit filed by the Madurai Adheenam before the Principal Sub-Court, seeking its help to dissolve a trust he created in collaboration with Nithyananda.
On Saturday, when the case was posted before judge Guruvaiyah, Nithyananda’s counsel raised objections to Arunagirinathar’s case.
The Madurai Adheenam filed the suit after the sub-registrar of Madurai South refused to cancel the trust’s deed. In an interim prayer, the Adheenam also requested the court to restrain Nithyananda and his followers from entering the mutt.
On Thursday, the judge directed the State to file a counter affidavit and posted the case for Saturday for disposal. Nithyananda’s lawyers said they required time to file a counter affidavit to the original suit. Following this, the judge adjourned the case to Tuesday for further hearing.
Addressing reporters, Arunagirinathar’s lawyers said that they would decide on the next move after seeing the nature of objections raised by Nithyananda in his counter affidavit.
