Bhopal: Model-turned-godman Bhayyuji Maharaj, who had many veteran political leaders and Bollywood actors as his followers, on Tuesday allegedly shot himself dead in the study room of his daughter at his residence, ‘Silver Spring’, a famous address in Indore.
The self-styled spiritual leader shot himself in his right temple from a licenced pistol at around 12.15 pm. He was rushed to the Bombay Hospital in Indore where doctors declared him dead.
“His family rushed to the room where he confined himself after hearing gunshot.
The room was closed from inside. The family members broke open the doors to find him in a pool of blood. They then rushed him to the hospital,” deputy inspector general police Hari Narayan Mishra said.
