According to the FIR, Mahant Narendra Giri went to the Baghambri Gaddi's room on Monday at around 12:30 pm for rest after a meal. He usually had tea at three o'clock in the afternoon, but that day he skipped it and had said that he would inform himself when he would like to have it. After this, there was no response from the Mahant till 5 pm after which the doors of his room were broken open and they found his dead body hanging from the fan and the police was informed.
