Officials in India's Karnataka state are sealing the sprawling centre of a controversial Hindu holy man who is facing charges of sexual misconduct.

A large number of policemen have been deployed outside the complex of Swami Nithyananda near the city of Bangalore.

On Monday, Karnataka Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda ordered the police to arrest the guru and seal his ashram.

Nithyananda has been absconding since last week when his men allegedly forced a reporter to leave a press conference.
