Mahant Narendra Giri found dead in Prayagraj mutt
Mahant Narendra Giri, head of the Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad, had played an important role in bringing together various organisations of saints. His death is extremely painful, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted. The police said the cause of the saint's death will be known only after post-mortem examination of the body and forensic tests.

PRAYAGRAJ, Sept 20: Mahant Narendra Giri, head of the Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad, was found dead in the Baghambari Mutt in Daraganj area of Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh on Monday evening. According to the police, the cause of death is not known.

Heavy police force was deployed at the mutt when the news broke. Barricades are also set up in the area. All top police officials arrived at the mutt. The cause of death will be known only after the post-mortem examination and forensic tests, the police said.

The police had received a call at 5.30 pm from the mutt informing that the saint was found dead, according to a PTI report.

The Hindu seer was hospitalised in April after he tested positive for covid.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi mourned Mahant's death saying he had played an important role in bringing together various organisations of saints. His death is extremely painful, Modi tweeted.

Several political and religious leaders mourned Giri. "The death of the mahant is an irreparable loss to the spiritual world. I pray to Lord Shri Ram to grant strength to the bereaved followers to bear this sorrow. Om Shanti,” Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tweeted.

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, a former UP Chief Minister, tweeted that his death is an “irreparable loss”.

The Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad is an organisation of Hindu sadhus.
