Five held in plot to defame seer with fake sleaze tape

Bangalore: A seer in a compromising position and a video a perfect recipe for blackmail.Thats what a few disgruntled priests attempted,landing some of them in deep trouble.Probably taking a cue from the Swami Nityananda sex scandal,14 priests of the famous Gokarna temple hatched a conspiracy to tarnish the image of the pontiff of Ramachandrapura Mutt.
They found a look-alike of the Ramachandrapura Mutt pontiff,Sri Raghaveshwara Bharati Swami,dressed him up like the seer and shot photos and a video of him petting a calf.Later,they morphed the images by replacing the calf with a top Bollywood actress.But before they could put the videos and photos in public domain,the police swooped down on them.
The accused were unhappy with the government handing over the famous Gokarna temple (Lord Mahabaleshwara temple) to the Ramachandrapura Mutt.They felt defaming the pontiff would incur public wrath and the temple administration would be handed back to the local trust.Five persons are behind bars,while a hunt is on for the remaining nine conspirators.After assuming charge in May 2008,the BJP government had handed over the famous Lord Mahabaleshwara temple at Gokarna to the Ramachandrapura Mutt in Shimoga district,attracting criticism from priests and the opposition.The priests were unhappy because the decision curtailed their earnings.
Initially,the disgruntled priests,led by Ganesh Jogalakere,son of the chief priest of Mahabhaleshwara temple,tried to raise awareness by distributing pamphlets questioning the motive behind handing over the temple to the Ramachandrapura Mutt.The language and the photographs on the pamphlets were indecent.Later,a 20-minute CD was found in circulation.It contained clippings of women devotees speaking to the pontiff and a photo of a top Bollywood actress visiting the mutt.As a next step,the priests identified a look-alike of Ramachandrapura Mutt pontiff Sri Raghaveshwara Bharati Swami.It was a 26-year-old youth,Ravi Kodlekara alias Balachandra Prabhakar Kodlekara.He was made to practise the mannerisms and postures of the pontiff.
Ravi was dressed up like the pontiff and more than 50 photographs were taken from different angles by Shivaram Adi.The photo of Ravi holding and petting a calf was taken from different angles.Later,the photo was morphed by replacing the calf with a seminude photo of the actress.It was made to look like he was holding and kissing her.
