Report on a murder at Prashanthi Nilayam

Swiss-German lady brutally murdered in her new flat at Prashanthi Nilayam

A letter was sent to Robert and Reidun Priddy about the brutal murder of a lady in her room at Prashanthi Nilayam (date uncertain, but in 1992) but about a week after the murder of the Swiss/German-speaking lady in her room in Prashanthi Nilayam . (This took place about a year before the June 1993 murders in Sathya Sai Baba’s bedroom took place.) At that time, Marge Hendel, an American, was living mostly in Norway, but with months per annum in India for a number of years.

Marge Hendel was known to many US devotees, having known Alvin Drucker well and been in his group when Jewish US devotees had a Sai Baba interview together arranged by Drucker. Later Marge Hendel stayed for much longer periods in India, at Puttaparthi and Brindavan.

My wife Reidun had met the Swiss-German lady who was about to become a flat owner. When we were back at the ashram again, I asked Danish Mr. Thorbjørn Meyer – then the coordinating Chairman of the Sathya Sai Organization for Scandinavian group of countries what he knew of the murder of that lady. He said she was killed at her apartment a day or so after having been to the State Bank of India in Puttaparthi, and because she had not concealed her withdrawal (of Rs. 80,000.- an extremely considerable sum for Indian villagers), she had been followed by two brothers who lived in Puttaparthi. Meyer added that it was really her own fault! I was lost for words when he said that… he was and still is one of the most active Sai officials at covering up anything whatever which may reflect badly on his Lord and Master, Sathya Sai Baba.

The above murder was investigated by the Puttaparthi police, who caught the murderers. Some weeks later they escaped from custody. V.K. Narasimhan told me that the police had allowed them to abscond after they had agreed to tell where the money was hidden, which the police then took for themselves. The Prashanthi Nilayam authorities were apparently able to prove this embezzlement and this information was used by Janakiramiah and others involved to pressure the Puttaparthi police chief into giving the order for the execution by rifle fire of the four Sai follower young men trapped in Sai Baba’s bedroom apartment.

Murders of visitors are not at all uncommon at Sathya Sai Baba ashrams, here is another case reported in India:-

Murder of German Lady at Puttaparthi?
Published by Vaartha, Telugu Daily – 17.08.1997

Bukkapatnam (Aug. 16) : The disappearance of a German lady A.M.S. Julanda Mariatus, who came to Puttaparthi is being doubted whether she has been murdered. This news has spread like wild fire in and around Puttaparthi. All the relevant records belonging to her like passport, books etc., were found in a small village near Puttaparthi. Her passport Number is 9502746744.

Evidence is there that she visited India last year on August 16th. It is suspected that she might have been murdered on 4th or 5th of August. On the road that leads to Beedupalli which is behind the Sai Baba Super Speciality Hospital near Chakala Vaani Gutta her belongings – Passport, Books, Vanity bag, purse etc., were found tied together and thrown by the local cowherds on the 5th of this month which were distributed amongst themselves.

When the thrown out passport was found by a peasant, taking some villagers with him, he went to Sai Baba´s abode “Prasanthi Nilayam” and handed over the passport to the Public Relations Office. Then the news of the passport reached the police station. On the other hand, people of Beedupalli informed this reporter that some of them had seen the body while some denied it. The villagers had observed that some four persons were roaming in an Auto near Chakalavaani Gutta.

It is learnt that on 2nd and 3rd of this month, this German lady had withdrawn Rs. 100000/- from a bank. Among the things belonging to her, a visiting card of a Star Hotel in Bangalore in which the Phone Number is 5585858. The Public Relations Department of Prasanthi Nilayam stated that they have also informed about this the German embassy. It is almost confirmed that she was murdered.



One Response to “Puttaparthi murders”

  1. S. Srinivas said

    Shashi Tharoor accused Hitchens, a blind atheist, of being a polemicist, he advised him to measure his words carefully and not offend people.
    He argued that the Danish cartoonist was rather insensitive and naïve for not having anticipated the outcome of his impetuous act of caricaturing a great religion’s prophet.
    He said he was all for freedom of speech and said he was appalled by the way the Sikhs objected to a play being staged in London because it had something involving a Gurudwara. He felt that the theatre should have been allowed to stage the play and so the freedom for expression.
    He also said how much he was appalled when M.F.Hussain was criticized for portraying a Hindu goddess naked. Shashi Tharoor was very upset that Hussain could not express his art form with freedom.

    Strangely another erudite person, Hitchens, did not ask Tharoor why he had double standards. Why is it that he doesn’t say that MF Hussain should Also have been sensitive not to offend Hindu sentiments and should have anticipated the outcome of a Hindu backlash.
    These are our heroes and leaders! Tharoor has a strong libido, good looks, gift of the gab and status conscious parents who have taught him the ways to creep up the steeples of the social monuments, but unfortunately he has the misfortune being blessed with ignorance.

    Watch this man getting away with his illogical balderdash.

    PS: Shashi Tharoor is a fan of the paedophile and criminal Satya Sai Baba
    [Go to YouTube and type: The Secret Swami / Murali Manohar Joshi makes a fool of himself]

    PS: 2 Strangely Hussain doesn’t derive sustenance by caricaturing his own prophet or his wives. He selectively picks a Hindu goddess. Tharoor, here, doesn’t think that Hussain should apply discretion.
