Hours after being granted bail by a court here, controversial self-styled godman Nityananda was re-arrested on Thursday and remanded to one-day judicial custody on charges of disturbing the peace.
Nityananda, arrested on Wednesday after he appeared before a court to surrender in an assault case, was slapped with a fresh case of disturbing the peace in Ramanagara and surrounding areas of Nityananda Ashram at Bidadi near here.
He was arrested under different IPC Sections, including 151 (relating to disturbance of the public peace) and sent to one-day judicial custody, Ramanagara Superintendent of Police Anupam Agarwal told PTI.
Agarwal said Nityananda would be taken to Mysore Central Prison to avoid any untoward incidents. He added the case would be heard on Friday and the deputy commissioner would take a further decision.
