A priest will not consider even killing an ant. So what … to talk about killing a human being?
SACRAMENTO – A 60-year-old man was found dead around three and a half months ago at Sacramento home.
Details of the update of that case emerge as investigations take a boost about the last person arrested in the case and what may have motivated the killing.
Ferocious Stabbing was itself considered as a major crime but according to a latest investigations revealed that the alleged murderer was a Hindu priest and this is sending shocking waves through the Hindu community.
Ashok Kumar was killed in August in his home on Grandstaff Drive. A month later Sacramento police arrested Tiwan Greenwade, Vicky Rainone and the victim’s wife, Rohini Kumar, for murder.
Last week Raghua Sharma was charged with the same, and officers announced they believed there were no more suspects outstanding.
He blessed their homes, married couples and reportedly helped with the funeral of his alleged victim.
Outraged Hindus say that the killing in this case was all because of a priestly love-triangle.
“Very shaken, everybody’s talking about it. Oh man, disgrace for the priest,” Prandit Girwar Maharaj said about his fellow Hindu priest
He sees the disgrace and moreover has disdain for the behavior 58-year-old Raghua Sharma has been accused of behavior divorced from the sobriety, loyalty, tolerance and mercifulness he says a priest is required to exhibit.
“A priest will not consider even killing an ant. So what … to talk about killing a human being?” Maharaj said with a shrug of his shoulders.
After Ashok Kumar was killed in his home a police responded to calls of a burglary in progress, Sharma appears to have donated $5 to a ‘GoFundMe’ set up by a friend to help Kumar’s children and the wife who would eventually be charged with killing her husband.
That page has now been suspended citing recent events.Police have not clarified the relationship between the four suspects now being held without bail in connection with Kumar’s murder, but Sacramento’s Hindu community can’t stop talking on and off-line about the rumors of a love affair between Kumar’s wife Rohini and priest Raghua Sharma.
“The victim had some insurance for his life insurance and wife has been having relationship with Raghua Sharma, and they were trying to get some money out of him and I heard he wanted to go back to Fiji,” said Maharaj.
“He had a relationship with that woman, people were talking about it in the community,” said Sunil Prakash.
“Worshippers are really upset. People, they think he was a priest and he was doing these wrong things you know. What will he teach us?,” Prakash said.
