His body was then dumped on the riverbank outside the village. He had been working as a priest in the Mahadev temple in Jithania village for the last 3 years.
Such incidents happen when Hindus know that they should not take the law into their own hands, but do not know who should be appointed as a priest in the temple as they lack education on Dharma !
