RAJAPALAYAM (Tamil Nadu): The Nithyananda ashram near here wears a deserted look as devotees have fled it ever since a private channel telecast clippings showing him in a compromising position with an actress on Tuesday.

Police bandobust has been provided to the ashram and no untoward incident has been reported here so far, police said.

Case registered

In Puducherry, the Orleanpet Police on Friday registered a case against Nithyananda for allegedly cheating and wounding religious sentiments of people here. It was based on a complaint given by a group of advocates.
