Mahant’s suicide note fake: Niranjani Akhara’s head

PRAYAGRAJ: Rejecting the suicide note of Mahant Narendra Giri after terming it as fake, Acharya Maha Mandaleshwar (supreme head) of Shri Panchayti Akhara Niranjani, Acharya Kailashanand Giri on Wednesday said that “it is not a suicide note but a conspiracy note”.
Talking to TOI at Bagambari Gaddi Math, Kailashanand Giri dismissed the purported suicide note allegedly written by Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP) president and secretary of Niranjani Akhara Mahant Narendra Giri.
“This is not a letter written by maharaj (Mahant Narendra Giri) as he never used to pen anything so elaborate… he only used to put his signature while dictating the content of the letter to someone else. I have closely read the letter many times and it contains some words that seem to have been written by someone else having a good command over the Hindi language. Also, a character — ‘/’ — is used with some words in the letter which Maharaj didn’t even know how and when to use”. “I have been very close to him during his lifetime and knew him well. This letter is fake and part of a larger conspiracy to cover his murder which has been committed over greed of land,” he claimed.
Kailashanand Giri said, “Mahant Narendra Giri could never commit suicide as he was a roaring saint, who took a tough stand against fake godmen in the country and stood up to the repercussions.”
If he was under any pressure or needed money or there was any other issue, he would have shared it with me and with Ravindra Puri, the secretary of Niranjani akhara,” added Kailashanad.”
“I have full faith in our Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who would probe the matter with full transparency. Names of several big-shots would be exposed,” he said, adding, “Once the guilty are found, they should be punished in a way that sets an example for the future.”
On being asked if Balbeer Giri would be declared as the successor of Narendra Giri, Kailashanand Giri said, “He is my disciple and the mahant of the Akhara. The Akhara would soon hold a meeting and decide the issue as to who would succeed Narendra Giri.”
On Anand Giri’s role in the conspiracy, he said, “This is for the SIT and police to probe, look into the call details, etc., and come out with the truth. However, I question the facts why Maharaj ji (Narendra Giri) did not choose his own room to take the extreme step, why was the door of the room where the body was found forcefully opened, why no one videographed the entire process of breaking the door and brining the body down.”
