Has there been any update or more details, or a response from the headquarters or leadership? Apparently, one of the victims mentioned in the suicide note.

So what happened to Baba's promise that not a hair on a BK's head would be harmed? This is not the first time for such serious events happen in Agra. I guess they are a lot more common across the whole of India than we are hearing about. The last time, the centre-in-charge just absconded, to hide somewhere else in the BK network. Beyond "some allegations the Sisters have made over handling money" (the duo accused them of defrauding money and also engaging in unethical activities), it's not clear what has happened but thee four accused also left Agra.
Two siblings both initiated into Brahma Kumaris sect eight years ago have died by suicide in Jagner area in Uttar Pradesh's Agra, on Friday night. The duo has written to their families, the organisation and UP Chief Minister, levelling charges against a quartet of having driven them to take the drastic step. One of the Sisters have written to UP CM Yogi Adityanath seeking stringent punishment for the quartet as it was meted out to godman Asaram Bapu who was convicted on rape charges.
Prior to the suicide, both of them shared the note with their family members and also on the WhatsApp group of the ashram.

Ekta's suicide note mentions that Neeraj had assured her of his support while they lived in the center. However, after the center was established, he stopped speaking to them. Ekta also accused the four of defrauding people of lakhs in the name of the centre.

3 arrested in Sisters' suicide in Agra ashram

Agra, Nov 12 (PTI) Three people were arrested in connection with the suicide of two Sisters, both inmates of Brahma Kumaris Ashram in Jagner, police said on Sunday.

The Sisters, Ekta Singhal, 38, and Shikha Singhal, 34, allegedly killed themselves Friday night at the ashram and left behind a note naming four people responsible for their action, they said. Besides the note, police also recovered their mobile phones from the ashram.

An FIR was filed in the matter under section 306 of Indian Penal Code at Jagner Police Station in Agra district.

'On Friday night, police got information about the suicide of two Sisters associated with the Brahma Kumaris Ashram,' Assistant Commissioner of Police, Kheragarh, Mahesh Kumar, said.

Kumar said both Sisters had been living in the ashram for the past several years. In the suicide note, the Sisters accused Neeraj, Tara Chand, Guddan, and Poonam of driving them to suicide, he said.

'Neeraj Singhal is a cousin of the Sisters and Tara Chand is their uncle. Poonam is a member of the ashram. Guddan too is a relative of the Singhals,' Kumar said.

According to the ACP, the accused together had set up the ashram in Jagner. Later Poonam and Neeraj moved to its Gwalior centre.

'As per the suicide note, an amount of Rs 25 lakh was the cause of the dispute,' Kumar said.

Jagner Police Station SHO Avneet Man said Tara Chand, Guddan, and Poonam have been arrested and a hunt is on for Neeraj Singhal. PTI COR VN VN
