PARAVUR: Paravur Additional District Sessions court has acquitted Himavalbhadrananda aka ‘Thokku Swami’ in a case in which he threatened to kill himself at a police station by firing gun shots upwards.

He was acquitted as the court felt that there was no evidence to prove the alleged crime. But, Swami didn’t appear in the court Tuesday as he was in remand in a case related to fostering communal hatred.

Swami, who threatened to kill himself by pointing gun at his head at his rented house at Asokapuram Manakkappadi on May 17, 2008, was taken to the Aluva Police station for a compromise talk.

Coming to know about the incident, a herd of people including media persons reached the station. Swami got provoked after media persons tried to take his photograph and fired gun into the ceiling of the station room. The bullet peeled off a layer of concrete, which fell on the Circle Inspector and a few journalists. They also sustained small injuries.

Following this, a case was registered against the Swami for attempt to suicide, illegal possession of arms and attempt to murder.
The case which was taken up on Tuesday to pronounce the verdict was later postponed to Thursday.

The swami was arrested from the court on Tuesday when he arrived to hear the verdict of his case. This time it was based on a complaint that he incited communal hatred through social media.
