Sai Baba’s death super scandal: his cousin’s campaign for justice!
Posted by robertpriddy on April 24, 2015
The Times of India reports on the effort of Mr. Ganapathy Raju – cousin of Sathya Sai Baba – to get justice concerning the death, written 300 letters to the judiciary et. in vain. Now we see the MOST revealing background of the utter corruption regarding Sathya Sai Baba of the Indian police, legal and government hierarchy. In any law-abiding society such an effort would have paid off with a media and legal investigation at the very least. We now read:-
Cousin demands CID probe into Sai Baba’s deathTNN | Apr 24, 2015, 04.28 AM IST
HYDERABAD: A day before Satya Sai Baba’s death anniversary, a cousin of the departed godman demanded a CID probe into his death claiming that Sai Baba passed away on March 29 and not as officially declared on April 24, 2011.Ganapathy Raju, Baba’s first cousin, alleged that the death was hushed up by a few trust members just to keep enough time to usurp as much wealth from the trust fund.“When Baba started showing signs of being unwell, why did the trust members call for a coffin and order two truckloads of flowers as done for a funeral? The death was not reported because the trust members needed time to usurp the wealth,” he said.An angry Raju asked why Sai Baba wasn’t taken abroad for his treatment. “Why isn’t the medical report being put out in public?” he questioned.“Also the medicines that were administered to Baba were not available in many hospitals. I wonder what drugs were given to him,” he alleged.He also said that the establishment of a private flying training school at the Satya Sai Airport was taken up in a coy manner only to fill a few pockets. When asked on why he chose to come forward with this information now, Raju said that he was hopeful that the formation of a new government at the state and Centre would call for immediate ‘justice’.“I have written close to 300 letters to various senior law enforcement officers, bureaucrats and leaders for a CID investigation into the matter but in vain. Till date, there has been no concrete planning to take up this matter,” he added.
I wondered why news about similar very credible claims by a former minister, Nagi Reddy, had disappeared entirely after he first went public in 2011.
