Agra: Hermits or saints are perceived to be ones devoid of desires. However, Haridwar’s 'Golden Baba' from Juna Akhada seems to challenge the notion. Laden with gold chains and jewellery worth Rs 3 crore, the flashy saint sought security from Agra’s top cop on his way back from Ujjain’s Simhasth Kumbh.

The ascetic had gone to Ujjain’s most talked of Simhastha Kumbh. On his way back to Bareilly he spoke to Agra’s SSP Dr Preetinder Singh, seeking security from the top cop. Adhering to the baba’s request, the police provided him security till Agra. Baba was further advised to seek help from higher authorities in case he wanted security beyond Agra, the cop added.

 

The saint along with his cavalcade created a buzz when they headed to a higher official’s office. Onlookers in a bid to capture the moment took photographs with 'Golden Baba'. Further, complainants who were hovering in and around the police station, being enthralled by the view, gathered around the ascetic and captured him on camera.
