Puri:Swami Ramcharandas famous as Mauni baba who participated actively in the protest against the killing of Laxmanananda Saraswati last year was chased and hacked to death by unidentified assailants in Puri on Tuesday.

The police said Swami Ramcharan Das was feeding fishes at a pond early in the morning when the assailants chased him with sharp weapons.Paikray said at least 10 injury marks were found on his body.

A popular figure in Puri, Das was an active member of the Matha Mahanta organisation of Orissa. In the aftermath of Saraswati’s killing last year,he took the lead in the protest against the VHP leader’s murder.

The police, however, ruled out any communal angle. “We suspect that he was killed over extortion money,” said Puri Deputy Superintendent of Police Rajkishore Paikray.

If one were to accept the extortion theory, then the police should tell how many others have been hacked to death because of their refusal to give money. And if they could come so quickly to the extortion theory,then they knew about the extortionists earlier. So why did they not take any action?

When a Hindu seer gets killed, the police find secular theories, always. When a non-Hindu priest gets killed, it immediately becomes a communal event, always.
