Just a day after religious body Akhil Bharatiya Akhada Parishad head Narendra Giri found dead allegedly by suicide in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, Police have detained three of his disciples, including one of his top aide, for questioning.
One of the detainees was Narendra's closest aide Anand Giri, who was his protégé till they fell out in May. Anand was allegedly kicked out of the priest’s group following accusations of fraud and financial mismanagement.
A few days later there was an apparent patch-up. A video showing Anand seeking forgiveness at the feet of his mentor, but according to police, it was short-lived.
Sandeep Tiwari and Aadya Tiwari — both of whom stayed with Narendra — are also being interrogated.
