Prof. Erlendur Haraldsson recorded views on Sai Baba's by his 'abandoned brother'

In his book 'Miracles are My Visiting Cards' in which he investigates various aspects of Sathya Sai Baba's life and works, Professor Erlendur Haraldsson interviewed several persons who gave accounts which conflict with the 'accepted wisdom' of Sai Baba followers and the 'official' propaganda spread by his organization and media outlets. Among these are recorded interviews with a witness were some with a Mr.Varuda in Madras in the mid-1970s, who had been a close friend of Krishna Kumar. He told that Sai Baba had openly called Kumar his 'soul brother',until in 1952, when he left Baba after years as his closest companions, not least because he was unfairly accused by Baba of having an affair with a 60-years old woman. Varuda knew Krishna Kumar well between May 1949 and 1953. Here is Varuda's account of Krishna's break with Sai Baba in Haraldsson's book (p. 164-5)
