Patna: The brother of a Hindu leader who died fasting to save the Ganga from pollution has filed a police complaint against another Hindu religious leader, police said on Saturday.
Satyam Kumar, brother of Swami Nigamananda, who died after being on hunger strike for over two-and-a-half months, lodged the complaint against Swami Shivanand of Haridwar.
Kumar said he feared for his own and his family`s life from the Swami. The complaint was filed in Kewti police station in Darbhanga district, about 200 km from here.
