Additional District and Sessions Judge at Karnataka's Chitradurga on Monday issued notice to the prosecution and others in the anticipatory bail application filed by Dr. Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru, the pontiff of Murugha Mutt of Chitradurga, accused of sexually abusing two minor girls staying in the hostels run by the Mutt.

The accused had approached the court after the police charged him along with four other accused Shivamurthy Murugha (hostel warden) Akkamahadevi Rashmi (Mutt follower), Parashivaiah Basavaditya (Mutt office bearer) and Gangadharaiah (lawyer), after the two girl students approached a Mysuru-based NGO Odanadi Seva Samsthe seeking help.

An FIR was filed at the Nazarbad police station based on a complaint by the NGO. The case was transferred to Chitradurga and the students were brought to the district Bala Mandira to record their statements and for medical examination.

After the matter was called out, the Court issued notices to the public prosecutor, the Complainant and all the victims as mentioned in the complaint.

The matter will be heard on September 1.
