During interrogation, it was also revealed that the followers of Baba have a lot of beliefs about Baba. Many problems are solved by Baba’s feet dust. The arrested accused have told that we run ahead and behind Baba’s convoy to take it out from the crowd. That day also, when the crowd came near the car for Baba’s feet dust, the sevadars stopped the crowd and as soon as the convoy moved ahead, the sevadars left the crowd uncontrolled to take the feet dust, due to which women and children started falling on each other and chaos ensued. Seeing this, the sevadars quickly left from there.

The police is also investigating whether any criminal conspiracy has been hatched by any of these sevadars.
