Boy Guru in Cash Probe

The Guru … at Heathrow

Cash Probe

A FINANCIAL investigation Into the Divine Light Mission of 14-year-old Guru Maharaj Ji has been started by the Indian Government.

The probe was ordered after the Guru, who has 6,000 followers in Britain and about 40,000 in the United States, returned to India a week ago with a suitcase containing about £45,000 in cash, watches and jewels, including diamond rings and a pearl necklace.

Accompanying the Guru, who was returning from a visit to London and New York earlier this month, were eight Jumbo jet airliner loads of devotees.

The Indian Embassy In London as well as diplomatic missions in other countries where the Guru operates, will be helping in the inquiry.
