Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy reacting to a case filed againt Murugha Mutt seer Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru of Chitradurga said that he was not surprised.

“This does not surprise me,” Kumaraswamy was quoted speaking to ANI.

“There were several discussions about this 5-6 months ago. This issue should have been taken care of at the initial stage. It should not affect the religious sphere otherwise,” he added.

Murugha mutt seer has allegedly sexually harassed the high school girls, who were residing in a hostel run by the mutt, according to the complaint.

Two girls ran away from the hostel and reached Cottonpet police station in Bangalore to file a complaint against Murugha Mutt seer, as per the complaint.

According to sources, the complaint is likely to be transferred to Chitradurga police as the incident happened there.
“After hearing about the plight of the two female students, an auto driver dropped them to the Odanad organization in Mysore,” said Stalin, a member of the Odanadi organization.
