Firing not aimed at Sri Sri Ravishankar: Chidambaram
New Delhi, May 31 (ANI): Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Monday said that the reported attack on Art of Living (AoL) founder Sri Sri Ravishankar may have not been aimed at him.
“The incident took place after he had left in his car. It may not be correct to say that the firing was aimed at him,” said Chidambaram, adding that the incident could be related to a dispute between two of his followers.
Having escaped unhurt Sri Ravi Shankar on Monday evening denied that the “attack” could have involved disgruntled disciples or rivalry in his ashram.
“Absolutely not! Absolutely there is no rivalry; there is no fight (in the ashram). This sort of allegation pains me,” Ravi Shankar told a private channel when he was asked if the attack could be an inside job involving disgruntled followers.
Meanwhile, the Karnataka Police has resumed the investigations and is scanning the spot for clues.
The Karnataka Government has beefed up security in and around the Art of Living ashram.
