The 45-year-old Digambar Jain saint Vimad Sagar was found hanging in his room. He was a resident of Shahgarh in Sagar district. Three days ago, he had come from a colony located at Aerodrome for Chaturmas in Gali Nanda Nagar, number 3 of Indore. On Saturday evening at 4.30 pm, his disciple Anil Jain saw him hanging from the fan. He informed the police.
Who was Sant Vimad Sagar?
Why his death is mysterious?
The family has raised questions over the suicide of Digambar Jain saint Vimad Sagar Maharaj in Indore. His Brother said:-
‘He can never do that. Those who used to teach others to live in Satsang, why would they do this? It is being said that he hanged himself. It is not possible to he can hang himself. As a child, he had broken one hand when he fell from a bicycle. Because of this, the bone in his hand had increased. Since then the hand did not go above the head. Lift the chair with one hand and see. How to reach 12 ft. How can a man make a noose with one hand?
Is sugar a big disease? Piles is also not a disease. Take medicine, it will be fine. If there was trouble due to illness, then the saint will take samadhi, will not commit suicide.
This should be investigated. Those who are behind this conspiracy should be behind bars. His opponents are certainly behind the incident, who were afraid of his growing popularity.
