KOZHIKODE: “Swami Saswathikananda was murdered,” said Head of Sivagiri Mutt Swami Prakashananda. “He was speaking to media persons here on Saturday. “There was a deep wound on his forehead. It was said that the injury happened during the rescue operation. But, I am sure the injury was not caused during the rescue operation. I suspect some one had hit him on  his head using a hard material before pushing him into the river,” Swami Prakashananda alleged.

He also asked how Saswathikananda, who knows swimming, would drown in the water. “The body was found placed among the rock in the river. This  is suspicious. Locals had also seen a person swimming to the opposite  side of the river,” Prakashananda said, adding that he is ready to repeat the claims before the investigators if asked.
