He is required to appear for medical tests in Bangalore on Monday in connection with a two-year-old rape case. But self-styled god man Nithyananda is heading to Mount Kailash in Tibet via Nepal.

As police officers wait for him, the controversial guru is in Nepal on way to a 15-day Kailash-Mansarowar ‘yatra’ leading a group of over 200 international devotees on spiritual pilgrimage.

The 34-year-old is accused of raping a Tamil actress and since Nithyananda had claimed that he was “not a man”, the CID sleuths want to conduct a potency test on him.

As the god man has failed to appear earlier for such tests, the police had obtained a court order for the same in June and sent a notice to him this month asking him to appear for the test on July 30.

But a release by PRWeb and a news item in, confirm that Nithyananda is on way to Mount Kailash and Mansarovar Lake, two of the most sacred sites for Hindus and Buddhists, located in Tibet.

“Paramhamsa Nithyananda is in Kathmandu at present and will be traveling to Kailash from there. But I have no idea where he is staying,” said an employee of the Bangalore-based Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam over phone.

En route to Kailash, the group will be visiting the sacred Hindu temples of Pashupatinath and Muktinath, the site states while adding that the god man will return to India in August.

Nithyananda hit the headlines in 2010 when his former associate made public a CD where he was shown with the actress. The god man has maintained that he is impotent.

The CID branch in Karnataka has formed a panel of medical experts and asked Nithyananda to appear before it at the Victoria Hospital in Bangalore on Monday to undergo tests.

Last month, Nithyananda had spent a night in jail after some of his followers attacked journalists at a press conference.
