EKANTIPUR REPORT

KATHMANDU, APR 24 –

Spiritual leader Sathya Sai Baba passed away at the age of 86 on Sunday.

Sai Baba was suffering from multi-organ dysfunction and was undergoing treatment at the Sathya Sai Baba super-speciality hospital. He died at around 7.40 this morning due to cardi-respiratory failure.

He was hospitalised on March 28 following problems related to heart and respiration.

Meanwhile, thousands of devotes have been thronging at the hospital following the death of the spiritual leader.

Born Nov. 23, 1926, in Puttaparti, the Sai Baba was first named Sathyanarayana Raju.

In 1940, he declared himself an “avatar,” or reincarnation, of another Hindu holy man called the Sai Baba of Shirdi, a town in the western Indian state of Maharashtra who had died in 1918.
