Self-Styled Godman Bhayyuji Maharaj of Madhya Pradesh has allegedly killed himself by shooting himself in the head. He was declared brought dead by the Bombay Hospital in Indore. Just hours before his death, he had wished Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on his birthday via Twitter. In 2012, on request of the then CM of Maharashtra Vilasrao Deshmukh Bhayyuji Maharaj had become the mediator between Anna Hazare and Aravind Kejriwal and helped Anna Hazare end his fast. Bhayyuji belonged to a Mutt in Indore and had got his spiritual lineage from the Nath tradition, which UP CM Yogi Adityanath belongs to. Bhayyuji had even rejected the position of Minister of State offered by the Madhya Pradesh government. After his first wife died in 2015, he married Dr Ayushi Sharma in November 2017. He has a daughter from his first wife. The exact reasons for this extreme step are not known yet. Watch the latest video of Bhayyuji Maharaj being taken to the hospital.
