Mahant Giri's death: Akhilesh seeks probe by sitting HC judge


Prayagraj (UP), Sep 21 : Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav has demanded that a sitting judge of the high court should be asked to probe the mysterious death of Akhara Parishad chief Mahant Narendra Giri. Akhilesh reached Prayagraj on Tuesday to pay his respects to the departed saint, who allegedly died by suicide on Monday evening. "If the truth has to come out, then a probe should be ordered by a sitting high court judge," he told reporters.
