The suicide note, purportedly written by Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad President, Mahant Narendra Giri, who ended his life allegedly by suicide on Monday evening, was made public today. The suicide note, running into almost 8 pages, reveals that the seer was deeply disturbed but does not mention clearly the incidents that drove him to take the extreme step. The Mahant has said that he was disturbed because of his estranged disciple Anand Giri and the priest of the Hanuman temple, Adya Tiwari and his son Sandeep Tiwari, but did not elaborate.
