The police sources confirmed that the Lingayat seer Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru, who is suspected of rape, allegedly sexually attacked minor girls for more than ten years.
At the moment, Shivamurthy Sharanaru is being detained in Chitradurga’s district jail.
The alarming allegations made by a number of witnesses against the accused seer’s habit of sexually abusing minors in the Chitradurga Murugha mutt for more than ten years are being confirmed by the police.
There were additional victims, according to former Murugha Mutt member, Sharananda Swamiji.
According to the sources, the police are also looking into the alleged seer’s travels abroad amid claims that he visited Thailand for a “pleasure trip.”
The perpetrator is also said to have erected a cutting-edge bathroom where he called the minors and physically attacked them.
Additionally, he had assembled a crew of boys to help him by enlisting the aid of girls.
