ANANTAPUR: A 30-year-old woman devotee of Sathya Sai Baba was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a classroom of Sai Vidya Vahini, a school run by the Sathya Sai Central Trust, at Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh  this afternoon.

The woman, identified as Sai Prava of Delhi, used to be a coordinator at Sai Vidya Vahini but had resigned from her post recently.

She was found hanging from the ceiling of a classroom at around 12 noon by workers. As it is the summer vacation, there were no students in the school.

Members of the Sai Baba ashram's Seva Dal informed the police. Though it is being described as a case of suicide for reasons yet unknown, the Puttaparthi police, who have registered a case, are investigating other possibilities.
