A blue corner notice is issued to locate a person who is missing or is an identified or unidentified criminal or is wanted for a violation of ordinary criminal law.
According to a news report, the Ahmedabad Rural Police had sent a letter to the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) last month in this regard.
"The CID is the nodal agency for getting Interpol to issue Blue Corner notice. We have sent a letter to the CID for the issuance of notice to locate Nithyananda who is still untraceable," an official had told news agency PTI.
Nithyananda is charged with kidnapping and wrongful confinement of children to make them collect donations from followers to run his ashram.
Last reports on his whereabouts mentioned that he has created a Hindu Nation Ashram in Ecuador.
However, last month, the Embassy of Ecuador in the national capital denied that it has given asylum to self-styled godman Nithyananda or helping him in purchasing any land or island in South America.
“The Embassy of Ecuador categorically denies the statement wherever published that self-styled Guru Nithyananda was given asylum by Ecuador or has been helped by the Government of Ecuador in purchasing any land or island in South America near or far from Ecuador,” the mission said in a statement.
