He said the travel expenses of those willing to depose before him and provide information would be met by the department and their identities kept in utmost secrecy.

The CID wing has been entrusted with the investigation into the allegations of sleazy activities by Nityananda, after Tamil Nadu police transferred the cases to Karnataka.
