Puttur: VHP District Secretary Radhakrishna Bhat Dies during Journey in Delhi

Puttur: Radhakrishna Bhat (61), a resident of Nehru Nagar and district secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) died in a railway station on Tuesday.

A group of five had gone on a Char Dham pilgrimage – covering four holy places Badrinath, Dwarka, Puri and Rameswaram – and had travelled towards Kedarnath. But since a bridge at Sonu Prayag had collapsed, they had to cut short their journey and diverted towards Badrinath.

There too the road had closed because of rains, the group travelled to Hardwar and reached there on June 28. They got stranded and could not proceed further nor could they return home. Holding a return ticket to Mangaluru, he was upset and tense that he had to waste the days there. Hence they decided to travel to Delhi.

In Delhi, while boarding a train, he is said to have slipped and fallen down. He may have suffered a cardiac arrest, said his companions. A post-mortem examination of his body was held in the Safdarjang hospital in New Delhi.

Bhat hailed from Kadaba and had relocated here some years ago. He began his career as a village accountant but later resigned to take up the profession of a document writer.

He is survived by wife, a son and a daughter.
