Mysuru: A Mysuru woman has lodged a case of sexual harassment against Vidyahamsa Bharati Swamiji. An FIR in this regard was registered at the Kuvempunagar police station on Saturday.

The Swami, who is said to be from Mandya district is camping in the city for Chaturmasya Vratha.

Apart from the Swami, the lady, in her complaint has also accused her husband of allowing the seer to sexually exploit her. Based on the complaint the police have named her husband Rajesh Bore as accused no. 1 and the Swami as accused no. 2 in the FIR.
