Scary stuff that needs to be exposed

I'm going to come out with the full dirt as I've heard it on Sai Bob, sex cowboy. I'm being flippant to deal with my revulsion as I write, so please forgive my intermittent attempts at humor.
Some years ago now, another woman ex-devotee gave me the phone number of a fellow in California (where I live) who'd taught at SB's school for (unfortunately betrayed) boys at Puttaparthi for many years. I called this fellow up, and he spilled his guts on the condition of privacy. I believe that he was justifiably concerned about repercussions as to his having spoken out, so I'll leave him nameless. Devotee readers, please trust that what I'm saying is not fictional. I have no desire to incur negative karma by stating lies.
This fellow (X) and I spoke for over one and a half hours. He told me things I'd never imagined of. He said that that SB's brother runs Puttaparthi like a Mafia don, demanding kickbacks and silence in exchange for the economic benefits that having a "guru" on site brings. He also said that the villagers are terrified for their lives because of SB's brother, and that it takes a long time (if ever) for the villagers to trust outsider s and tell them what's really going on, X told me that over the years a few villagers and college boys came to trust him and told him nightmarish accounts. Several college boys told him of the extensive sexual molestation and swore him to secrecy because they were scared for their lives. Villagers told X that in a few instances SB had also molested women and then had them murdered, and that their bodies were buried in the hills surrounding Puttaparthi. It apparently came to the attention of SB's henchmen that X knew too much, and he told me that a terrified villager told him that he'd heard that X was marked for death and that he had to leave the ashram immediately to save his life. That statement carries implications that reader can evaluate for themselves. At any rate, X fled Puttaparthi and returned to the US. He told the members of his local center what he'd experienced and was met by deaf ears and denial. He has since reestablished his career in the US an completely distanced himself from the sai organization.
X's sincerity was almost tangible over the phone. I have no reason to doubt him.
I live in Los Osos, California. I do not fear SB. It's taken me years to be open about what I've experienced and heard about the false avatar in whom I once so implicitly believed.
Prime Minister of India, shut Sai Baba's operation down! He is an insult to the true masters of Mother Bharati and a cultural embarrassment to an extraordinary spiritual heritage of a nation.
