Interpol issues blue corner notice against Nithyananda

The Interpol on Wednesday issued blue corner notice to help locate self-styled godman Nithyananda, who fled India last year after a rape case was registered against him.

He is wanted in India for several cases of rape and abduction.

The notice was issued against Nithyananda on the request of the Gujarat police.

A Blue Corner notice is issued to locate a person in a criminal investigation.

An FIR was lodged against self-styled godman in November last year, after two girls went missing from his ashram in Ahmedabad.

Nithyananda was earlier declared wanted by the Gujarat Police.
