Indian border officials on lookout for fugitive cosmic guruIndian border officials and embassies have issued an alert for a fugitive guru accused of rape, the government said, days after the holy man announced the creation of his own “cosmic” country. Swami Nithyananda — one of many self-styled Indian “godmen” with thousands of followers and a chequered past — is wanted by police for alleged rape, sexual abuse, and abduction of children. Earlier this week, he announced online that he has created his own new country — reportedly off Ecuador’s coast — complete with cabinet, golden passports, and even a department of homeland security.
