Rajasthan:Priest Burnt Alive, Attacked Over Land, He Said Before Dying

A priest in Rajasthan's Karauli district, round 177 km from state capital Jaipur, died due to burn injuries after he was attacked by a group of people over a land dispute.The priest had about thirteen bighas (around 5.2 acres) of land which belonged to the Radha Krishna temple trust in a village in the district. But the land was given to the head priest to till as a source of income. Lands like these, which belong to temple trusts, are generally given to caretaker priests for their use in return for the fact that they perform the pujas and carry out rituals in village temples.#Rajasthan #Karaulipujarimurder #KaraulipriestMurder
