Udupi: The mysterious demise of Sri Lakshmivara Theertha Swamiji of Shiroor Mutt here is filled with twists and turns. Every passing day, a new development gives a new dimension to the case.

According to sources, on June 24th 2018, Shiroor had written a letter to the district superintendent of police (SP), mentioning the differences of opinion he had with heads of other Mutts here and the Seer suddenly fell sick and breathed his last on July 19th.

In the letter, the Seer explains about the differences over handing back the idols of the presiding deity of Shiroor Mutt. The Seer also mentions in the letter that if anything untoward happens henceforth, the blame would entirely be on the heads of other Mutts.

“On account of my ill health, I had arranged for performing daily puja to the idol of my Mutt at Sri Krishna Mutt, after sending the idol of the presiding deity through the junior Swamiji of Adamaru Mutt. I have now fully recovered from sickness. But the Swamijis of Muttshave not been giving back the idols which rightfully belong to my Mutt,” explains the Seer in his letter.

The Seer also threatened to go on fast unto death till the idols are given to him back, in the letter. He also holds the heads of other Mutts entirely responsible, if any unfortunate incident were to happen with him because of his fasting.

On Saturday, SP Laxman Nimbargi informed the media that a month back, the letter was received via post and in reply he was advised that, since it was a civil issue with respect of God Vittal, approaching the court was the correct step.
