Meanwhile, the police have approached a court seeking permission to conduct scientific tests, including a lie detector test, on the young woman victim after she retracted her earlier confession.

The woman had initially told the police that she cut off the godman's genitals when he made sexual advances towards her. She also said that the godman never misbehaved with her, but in her friend's petition at the high court, he claims that the young women had done the bobbitsation.

The POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act) court dismissed the bail application of Swami Ganeshananda in the bobbitising case. The alleged rapist was a frequent visitor to her home as a spiritual guru to her family.

However, about a week ago, the student furnished a letter that declared the charges she had made against the Swami were not correct and had been dictated by the police.

She wrote that it was Ayyappadas who had committed the crime. There was a move to make him a scapegoat in order to protect Gangeshananda from the prosecution.

The High Court posted the case for next Monday. The special court was weighing whether the self-styled godman, accused of sexually abusing and raping the girl since she was 14, should be accorded bail.

Meanwhile, the 54-year-old godman is now in judicial custody till July 1 and his bail petition that came up Monday at the trial court was posted for Tuesday.

She sought a Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the matter, saying she had no faith in the Kerala Police.

The court also directed the victim to appear in the court on June 22 to explain her point of view.
