Tuesday, 04 May 2021 | PNS | Lucknow


Mystery shrouded the death of a 70-year-old preacher (Baba) whose body was found lying in a hut in Mathura on Sunday. Senior officers along with local police rushed to the spot after learning of the incident and started investigations.
As per reports, Bholamber of Fateh hamlet of Khair (Aligarh) had shifted to Mathura about a decade back and started living in a house in Vanshibat locality of Math in Mathura. In due course, he made several followers who used to visit his house to know about their future and ways to come out of miseries. On Sunday, when some people reached his house they were shocked to find Bholamber dead in a pool of blood and immediately called the police.
The victim seems to be hacked with some sharp-edged weapon after a struggle. The miscreants also pulled out his long beard causing facial  injuries. SHO of Math police station Bheem Singh said that his family and some local residents were contacted to confirm whether the victim had any enmity with anyone that could have led to his brutal killing. The police were clueless about any murder motive.
Meanwhile in Chitrakoot, a cricket match between children turned fatal when lightning suddenly struck leaving two players dead and causing burns to several others in Shikwa hamlet of Kota Kaidela police station area on Sunday evening. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath expressed grief over the loss of lives. A state government spokesperson said that the chief minister directed the DM of Chitrakoot to provide compensation to the kin of the deceased and ensure that the injured were provided adequate treatment.
As per reports, some teenagers were playing cricket in a field in Chitrakoot when lightning struck the ground in leaving Ramdayal (17) and Asheesh Kumar (12) dead, while Ankit (19), Brijesh Kumar (20), Deendayal (13), Golu (12) were critically injured. They were all rushed to a Community Health Centre (CHC) in Manikpur. CHC in-charge Dr Manish Kumar confirmed that two of the youths were brought dead while the remaining four were admitted and were undergoing treatment. On the directions of the CM, Tehsildar of Manikpur Rajesh Kumar Yadav visited the hospital and met their family members and assured them of compensation under the provisions of natural calamity. He also asked the doctors to provide best possible treatment to the victims, the cost of which would be borne by the government.
