Palghar lynching case: Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad demands CBI probe

After the Supreme Court ordered CBI probe into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, an apex body of saints are now demanding the same for Palghar lynchings.

The Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP) said that latest development in the Sushant Singh’s case has proved the “incompetence” of the Mumbai Police.

The ABAP demanded the CBI probed the lynching of two sadhus in Palghar, Maharashtra, on April 16.

ABAP president Mahant Narendra Giri said, “The ABAP is holding an important meeting on August 26 in Haridwar in which, besides discussing preparations for the Kumbh next year, it will also pass a resolution for a CBI inquiry in the killings in Palghar.”

Two seers, Kalpavriksha Giri Maharaj and Sushil Giri Maharaj, and their driver Nilesh Yalgade were brutally thrashed to death while police allegedly stood as mute spectators.
