Kanchipuram Temple Priest Scandal
A Kanchipuram priest has been accused of having sex with at least four women while performing the rites of worship, in what has become known as the Kanchipuram Temple Priest Scandal. The priest allegedly has recorded his act, resulting in 19 videos, 90 minutes each, which reportedly would be circulated on the Internet and via MMS.
The acts of the priest, identified as 35 year old “Deva-nathan”, were discovered after he had had his phone repaired. The repairman copied the videos, and started circulating them on CD. When the police traced back the CDs, Deva-Nathan fled, but surrendered four days later.
A sex scandal involving a temple priest in the famed pilgrim town of Kancheepuram has shocked devotees.
The public is aghast that his sexual escapades took place in the sanctum sanctorum of the Machaesa Perumal temple, a Vaishnavite shrine.
What’s even more scandalous is that the 36-year-old priest, Devanathan, used to engage in sexual acts even as unsuspecting devotees waited outside to perform puja.
Devanathan, a father of two, surrendered before a judicial magistrate on Monday after evading the police dragnet for more than a month.
His anticipatory bail plea was rejected by the Madras High Court a few days ago.
Local residents are outraged about the “unholy” acts that were apparently carried out in the Maheswara Temple. The man is currently in custody, and is accused of threatening and sexually assaulting at least 30 women. One of the women is a 30 year old teacher’s wife, who claims to have been drugged, raped and recorded on camera inside the temple, after which the priest blackmailed her with the footage.
As the accusations of obscenity have been expanded with rape and blackmail, the case was transferred to the district crime branch for investigation. There are rumors that CDs with the footage of the priests’ acts are circulating in the region. Police are investigating if the priest had an accomplice, who made and sold copies of the CDs.
The accused priest worked at a well known temple called Maheswara in Kanchipuram, a well known pilgrim location, known as the “City of 1000 Temples” and famous for its hand woven silk sarees. The Kanchipuram district is located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu
Hailing from Pazhaiya Seevaram near Kancheepuram, Devanathan was entrusted with the sacred duty of performing pujas at the temple, one of the oldest in the town.
The police said he used to entice women who came alone to enter the sanctum. Within a few days, he would succeed in his attempts to seduce them.
Among those who fell for his charm was a woman past her thirties and a salwar-clad woman in her early twenties.
The women who entered Devanathan’s good books got preference over others waiting for the puja.
The temple town is awash with the obscene CDs being sold on the sly. The first of the clips appeared in public a fortnight ago. The police swung into action and formed a special team to nab the priest.
