On Wednesday, even as Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad president Mahant Narendra Giri was laid to rest at Baghambari Math in Prayagraj, the spotlight stayed on Anand Giri, once said to have been the mahant’s “favourite disciple” and now at the centre of a case of alleged abetment of suicide.


New Delhi, 23 September 2021

As per news report of The Indian Express, two days ago, Narendra Giri was found dead in his room at Baghambari math, after which police claimed to have found a seven-page ‘suicide note’ in which the mahant held Anand Giri, besides two others, responsible for his death. On Wednesday, the Prayagraj police arrested Anand Giri and Adhya Prasad Tiwari, another of Narendra Giri’s disciples, after questioning them at length. This, however, is not Anand Giri’s first brush with controversy. Anand Giri, 38, a priest at the Bare Hanuman Temple in Prayagraj, who refers to himself as “spiritual leader” and “yoga guru”, is known to live it up — there are photographs circulating on social media of him in luxury hotels and on beaches, in fancy cars and bikes.
