I am not a man: Swami Nithyananda
In an unexpected twist to the 'Swami sex scandal' saga, Nithyananda has now claimed that he is not even a man and can not perform sexually.
The controversial godman who is currently in the custody of the Karnataka Criminal Investigative Department (CID) has asked the sleuths to conduct a potency test on him.
"I’m not a man. There’s no way I could have indulged in sexual activities with women. Do a potency test on me," the Times of India quoted Nithyananda as telling the CID officials.
However, the investigative officers chose to ignore the godman's startling claims as his passport clearly identifies him as a male and not as a transgender, the newspaper report said. (Photo: Swami Nithyananda)
