New Delhi, May 23, 2017: Spiritual leader Chandraswami on Tuesday passed away at the age of 66 due to Kidney failure.
Chandraswami was on dialysis and recently suffered a stroke followed by severe sepsis and developed Multi-Organ failure.
Born in 1948 with name Nemi Chand was a controversial Indian tantrik. He was called a godman by some people. His father came from Behror in Rajasthan and worked as a money lender.
In October 2014, he was involved in controversy when police registered a case of cheating and criminal breach of conduct on the complaint of Sanjay Kumar Aggarwal, a Vishakhapatnam-based businessman, who claimed that the godman’s aides took away the gemstones from him with the promise of buying them, only to disappear.
Chandraswami name had popped up in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case too. In his arguments before the Jain commission probing the conspiracy behind Rajiv’s killing, AICC counsel R.N. Mittal had in 1997 alleged that Chandraswami through his wide international links and involvement in major arms and financial deals arranged the funds which the LTTE needed badly.
