In a horrific rerun of the Palghar tragedy, it is reported that a temple priest has been burned to death. The incident took place in Rajasthan under Ashok Gehlot's Congress-ruled state.
The temple priest was targeted by six people for resisting goons to occupy the temple land. 50-year-old Babu Lal Vaishnav has gifted the part of the temple land for his services but the land mafia in the area tried to take it over.
In his dying declaration, the temple priest could be heard accusing his tormentors of this murderous assault. After having substantial evidence, Rajasthan police believe that the case is of suicide.
There is a possibility that the local police were hand in gloves with the local goons considering it receives massive support for the local politician.
The police have come up with the suicide angle. As per the sources, the family has agreed to take the body of the priest and they are on their way back to the village. It is also reported that the family is assured that Rs. 50 lakh would be given as compensation.
