Karnataka High Court: Freedom for CID to interrogate Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swami of Sri Ramachandrapura Math

1 min read

The Karnataka High Court has given a go – ahead to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to interrogate Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swami of Sri Ramachandrapura Math in a criminal case registered against him alleging that he had sexually harassed and raped a 47 – year old singer on several occasions. She was a devotee of the math.

While dismissing Swami’s petition, Justice K. N. Phaneendra said that the FIR cannot be quashed at this early stage as the status and reputation of Swami and the woman, both are at stake. He said that only a “fair and efficient” investigation could ascertain whether the allegations levelled against him were true or false.
