The Hitavada - - PASTIME - ■ Staff Reporter

THE last rites of spir­i­tual leader Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj were per­formed in In­dore on Wed­nes­day. Hun­dreds of peo­ple and some renowned politi­cians, in­clud­ing RPI leader and Union Min­is­ter Ram­das Athawale, Ma­ha­rash­tra min­is­ters Pankaja Munde, Ek­nath Shinde and Congress leader Shobha Oza at­tended the fu­neral of Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj.

Kuhu, who is daugh­ter from the first wife of Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj, per­formed the last rites of spir­i­tual guru who was known for his phil­an­thropic at­ti­tude, preach­ing and was close to many po­lit­i­cal lead­ers. Eyes of every­one were moist.

The body of Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj was kept on an open truck and was taken to cre­ma­to­rium ground. Most of the fol­low­ers could not be­lieve that their beloved spir­i­tual guru is no more. Some dis­ci­ples broke down when the body of Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj was taken for last rites. Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj’s daugh­ter Kuhu and sec­ond wife Dr Ayushi were in­con­solable.

Ear­lier, there was news that Mad­hya Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter Shivraj Singh Chouhan and some of his min­is­ters may take part in last rites of Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj but later on, owing to some ur­gent rea­sons, CM could not at­tend the last rites of Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj.

In the mean­time, po­lice have de­cided to go for foren­sic test of sui­cide note left by Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj in which he told that his main ‘Se­vadar’ should han­dle the prop­er­ties and fi­nan­cial mat­ters of him as he had faith in him.

“We have seized elec­tronic gad­gets in­clud­ing lap­top, mo­bile phone of Bhaiyyuji Ma­haraj to in­ves­ti­gate the case. In­stead of any fam­ily mem­ber, he made Se­vadar as care­taker of his prop­er­ties and fi­nan­cial mat­ters,” po­lice said.
