TL-PRIEST-ATTACK (CORRECTION)


A 68-year-old priest of Sai

Baba temple here died, days after he was attacked by a

Muslim neighbour following a quarrel over the use of

loudspeaker at the shrine, police said Friday.

The priest's death has triggered protests by BJP and

VHP.

Satyanarayana Sharma who was attacked on October 26,

succumbed to injuries at a hospital in Hyderabad Thursday,

police said.

Bharatiya Janta Party and Vishwa Hindu Parishad

demanded stringent action against those responsible for the

priest's death.

Sharma was allegedly assaulted by Sadiq Hussain,

32-year-old unemployed man, after he "refused" to turn off or

reduce the volume of the loud speakers at the temple, they

said, adding the accused was arrested on the same day and

later remanded.

Hussain had asked the priest to lower the volume saying

it was causing disturbance to his mother, police said.

Sharma was initially admitted to a Government Hospital

here but later shifted to Hyderabad as his condition

worsened, a police official said.

A case under Sections 452 (trespass after preparation for

hurt, assault or wrongful restraint) and 302 (murder) was

registered against the accused, the official said.

Describing the incident as an "attack on Hinduism," Swamy

Paripoornananda, who recently joined BJP, demanded an inquiry

by CBI into the incident.

BJP senior leader N Indrasena Reddy alleged the state

government failed in providing necessary medical care to the

deceased.
