Bhaiyyu Maharaj, a spiritual guru from Indore died on 12th June last year. Police assumed the case is of domestic discord at the time of suicide but assured that they will investigate from all angles and will not conclude anything in haste.
Now, the Police are claiming that they have decoded the case by arresting Palak Puranik, a former secretary of Bhaiyyuji who constantly pressurized him to marry her by blackmailing with some objectionable screenshots.
Police picked-up important link from Bhayyuji's advocate who received a call for a ransom of Rs. 5 cr. After which, they arrested Bhayyuji's Right-hand man Vinayak Dhule and driver Sharad Deshmukh.
Maharaj was popular in Maharastra and Madhya Pradesh, his followers consist of current CM Devendra Fadnavis, Lata Mangeshkar, Sushil Kumar Shinde and Vilasrao Deshmukh. Bhaiyyujji rejected the Minister of State ( MoS) post offered by BJP government by stating "holds no importance for a saint". Last year he called for Narmada Ghotala Rath Yatra for illegal sand mining and scarcity of plantation on its shore.
