Prayagraj (UP): The mortal remains of Mahant Narendra Giri were placed on Wednesday in a “samadhi” in the premises of the Baghambari Mutt, amid chanting mantras in the presence of dozens of saints and seers.

The ‘samadhi’ was placed under a lemon tree, as desired by the deceased saint.

Mahant Narendra Giri, who had taken her own life, allegedly by suicide on Monday evening, was placed in ‘samadhi’ while lying down and not in a sitting position, as is the custom.

Previously, the remains of the Mahant were taken in procession to Sangam for the last holy bath. Huge crowds gathered along the road to pay their last respects to the seer.

Narendra Giri’s autopsy was also performed on Wednesday morning by a designated panel of five doctors. The report was sealed and the viscera were kept for further examination.

Sources said, however, that the panel of doctors confirmed the death by hanging.
