Seer killed over property

Noorandeshwara Shivacharya, seer of Hiremutt at Kakkalameli village in the taluk, was killed by miscreants with an axe on Monday night.

The 35-year-old priest was hit on the head and one of the shoulders. He was rushed to the Sindhagi government hospital. But he died on the way to Solapur where he was being taken for advanced treatment. Police said a property dispute was behind the incident.

It is said the seer was killed as the court had ruled in his favour in a case filed by some members of his family, seeking a share in the Hiremutt property.

Rudraiah Maleiah Hiremutt, one of the seer’s elder brothers, has filed a complaint with the Sindhagi police, suspecting the role of another elder brother Mahantaiah and others.
