Prime News, National (Prayagraj), Nov 26:- The three accused in the Mahant Narendra Giri death case had circulated objectionable audio, defaming the seer and putting him under immense mental and psychological trauma due to which he ended his life.
In its 19-page chargesheet filed in the Mahant Narendra Giri death case, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has said that accused Anand Giri, Adya Tiwari and Sandeep Tiwari were guilty of abetment to suicide.
A video recorded by Mahant before his death has been treated as a dying declaration by the CBI, while the report of the seven-page suicide note sent for forensic and handwriting analysis is awaited.
On September 20, Mahant Narendra Giri, president of Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP), was found dead at the Baghambari Gaddi in Prayagraj.
The chargesheet states that on May 26, a truce was struck between Anand and the Mahant in Lucknow but it did not work out.
Mahant Narendra Giri became head of the Baghambari Mutt in 2004 and Anand became his disciple in 2005. Differences cropped up between them when Anand formed ‘Ganga Sena’ and held a camp without Mahant’s permission.
On January 7, 2010, Mahant named Swami Balbir Giri as his successor but on August 29, 2011, nominated Anand in a fresh will. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
