Mirchi baba files a complaint after he receives 3000 calls about his promise to do ‘Jal Samadhi’ if Digvijaya Singh loses

Investigation officer in the case, sub-inspector Yashwant Singh Parihar said, “A case has been registered against Narendra Giri and others and we have started an investigation. The call details are being looked into, and further course of action will be decided after the investigation”.

A self-proclaimed godman Swami Vairagyanand Giri, otherwise known as Mirchi Baba, who had promised to take Jal Samadhi if Bhopal Congress Digvijaya Singh lost, has now lodged a complaint with police after receiving more than 3000 calls on his mobile regarding ‘Jal Samadhi’.

Reportedly, controversial Mirchi baba had performed a Yagna by burning 5 quintals of red chilly ahead of the Lok Sabha elections to help senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh win from Bhopal. During this Yagna, he had vowed to take ‘Jal Samadhi’ if Singh loses. Congress leader Digvijaya Singh lost the Bhopal Lok Sabha elections to BJP candidate Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur.

After Digvijaya Singh’s defeat to Sadhvi Pragya, a social media campaign was launched to search for the godman. Later on 25 May a symbolic Jal Samadhi was also performed by the BJP supporters. Around the same time, the godman was quoted as calling his statement a political gimmick.

Subsequently, he decided to change track and requested to perform Jal Samadhi at 2.11 PM on 16 June which is reportedly the auspicious time of Anuradha Nakshatra, Chaturdashi. However, the district administration denied any such permission.

The controversial baba has now lodged a complaint with police after receiving such many messages as his ‘Jal Samadhi’ promise turned out to be just a political gimmick. Based on his complaint, a case under section 507 (criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication) of Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered against Narendra Giri and others at Ayodhya Nagar police station.

Investigation officer in the case, sub-inspector Yashwant Singh Parihar said, “A case has been registered against Narendra Giri and others and we have started an investigation. The call details are being looked into, and further course of action will be decided after the investigation”.

“In more than 100 pages we have submitted the details of around 3000 mobile phone numbers from which calls and threats were received. We have informed the police that Narendra Giri and people close to him had made these calls and threatened Swami Vairagyanand Giri,” said Syed Majid Ali, the advocate of the Swami Vairagyanand Giri.
