After the post-mortem, his mortal remains were taken for bathing rituals at Sangam. It was then brought to Hanuman temple and then to the Muth at Allahapur. 

In the suicide note, Mahant Narendra Giri urged his peers to appoint one Balbir Giri as the Mahant of the Baghambari Math. The note clearly mentions that "information was received from Haridwar that Anand Giri will defame me by adding my photo with a girl through a computer... Anand Giri says how long will Maharaj continue to prove his innocence? The respect I am living with, if I get disgraced, then how will I live in society? It's better to die so I am committing suicide".

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has requested everyone to not give unnecessary statements and let the investigating agencies do their work. He assured that the case will be solved soon and that evidence has been collected by police in connection with the case.

The state government has also constituted a special investigation team to probe the case of Narendra Giri's death.
