Sai Central Trust van impounded by Andhra police with treasure trove?
Posted by robertpriddy on June 18, 2011
A contact at an Andhra Pradesh police department has reported that a Sathya Sai central trust van fleeing from Puttaparthi has been intercepted. Three men caught with several crores of rupees of cash and valuables arrested. Update when this can be confirmed or denied officially. See previous blog on the huge treasure trove hoarded in secret in his closely-guarded rooms by the self-proclaimed propertiless renunciate Sathya Sai Baba – a vast mass of valuables and even food – some hidden under his five-by-five meter bed (what was that for, one asks?). Couldn’t he have taken them with him?
VERY LATEST! India Today New Channel has confirmed the arrest. Keywords from their programme were:- “Puttaparthi cash haul”…….” huge cash seized from Sai Baba trust van”……….” Sathya Sai Trust van intercepted and huge cash haul in bags”……” Van and occupants arrested in Kodikonda checkpost in Ananthapur…driver confesses being Sathya Sai trust van driver coming from Puttaparthi”……..” cash seized being held on the spot…currency counting machines being rushed to the spot”
In view of the documented facts that the Central Trust persons involved have lied about the hoard they claimed never existed (accusing critics of all manner of smear campaign!), certainly including disreputable ex Chief-Justice P. N. Bhagwati who seems to have master-minded the cover-ups and exclusion of relatives and others promised access to the yajur mandir… in view of all that, suspicion falls on the same individuals as to the attempt to steal away a massive portion of the valuables. Only an independent investigation could get anywhere near the bottom of this deep deception… but the politicians will probably want to deny the corruption and let everything go on as before. Wait and see!
