Interpol has issued a blue-corner notice to help locate Nithyananda, the self-styled godman who fled India last year amid allegations of rape and sexual abuse, Gujarat police said on Wednesday.

"The Interpol issued the Blue Corner notice against the controversial godman this month," Deputy Superintendent of Police K T Kamariya told news agency PTI.

The police said they were working that a Red Corner Notice be issued by the Interpol against him now.

A Blue Corner notice is issued to locate or obtain information about a person in a criminal investigation, while a Red Corner notice is issued to seek arrest of a wanted person.

Nithyananda is wanted by the police in Gujarat and Karnataka in a case of kidnapping and wrongful confinement of children to make them collect donations for his Ashram in Ahmedabad. He has also been accused of raping one of his disciples.
