Several major roads in Delhi have been choked following the funeral procession of Nirankari Sant Baba Hardev Singh, who died in a road mishap in Canada last week as thousands of his followers came out on the streets to pay last respects to the departed soul.
A traffic advisory has been issued by the Delhi Police for commuters, urging them to avoid certain roads. The heavy pedestrian movement in the procession has led to the closure of traffic from Kingsway Camp to Burari Road. In the traffic advisory, motorists have been urged to take alternate route.
Followers of Baba Hardev Singh from across the country have gathered in the national capital to catch a glimpse of their spiritual leader. Religio-philanthropic Sant Nirankari Mission was headed by 62-year-old Baba Hardev, who passed away along with his son-in-law in a road accident. The mortal remains of Baba Hardev Singh were brought to Delhi from Canada’s Montreal on Monday.
For devotees who cannot make it to Delhi to join the funeral procession of Baba Hardev Singh personally, the Sant Nirankari Mission had made special arrangements online. The followers can follow the last rites through live streaming on the website – live.nirankari.org.
