UPDATE: TRUCK DRIVER WHO ‘RAN OVER’ TWO JAIN
MONKS IS ARRESTED
The police arrested the truck driver,
Ashwin Nayaka, who allegedly ran over
two Jain monks on National Highway 8 near Bharuch on January 1, based on his
identity established by CCTV footage. Mr. Nayaka confessed that while
attempting to overtake two vehicles from the wrong side, he could not see the
monks due to fog and ran over them. Police had analyzed CCTV footages of Karjan
toll plaza and kept a watch on Nayka. The forensic report stated that the
sample of the clothes of the monks matched with the tire marks collected from
Muni Sri Out of Danger: After the attack Muni Sri bleeded very badly & became unconscious. He was shifted to the hospital & 4 bottles each of glucose
& blood were given to him. Muni Sri was operated later in the night (2.30
am January 2, 2013) at Junagadh and he is out of danger. His condition seems to
be stable and he is responding to the treatment.
Renounced from Diksha: Since Muni Sri is subjected to medication he has been
renounced from diksha as per the instructions received from his guru Achrya 108
Sri Pushpadantha Sagarji Maharaj. Muni Sri was very dissappointed owing to the
fact that he has been renounced from Muni Diksha. He will be reinstated into
the ascetichood once he recovers fully from the injuries.
Thoughts of Sallekhana: Since he has been renounced from Sallekhana he
has started thinking about taking sallekhana.
