A Nanded Hindu seer from Maharashtra and his disciple were killed in a road accident in Madhya Pradesh’s Jabalpur district in the early hours of Friday, police said.

The accident took place near Dhangawan village around 5:30 am and also left one person injured, they said.

“Sant Tyagi Maharaj, 45, from Nanded in Maharashtra and his disciple Balram Patil, 35, died after the four-wheeler they were traveling in collided with a parked truck on National Highway-30, about 45 km from Jabalpur District Headquarters”. Sihora police station manager Girish Dhurvey told the PTI news agency.

“One person sustained injuries and was admitted to a hospital,” he said.

The religious leader and some of his followers were on their way to Nanded from Chhattisgarh when it happened, the police official said.

The accident may have occurred due to poor visibility as a result of heavy fog on the road, it added.
