The incident has caused a stir in the area as it has been revealed that they both consumed sulfuric acid and died after listening to motivational, religious speaker and self-proclaimed godman Osho Rajneesh.

The incident occurred late night on Tuesday (May 28) inside a graveyard in Kalpi, and the deceased have been identified as Aman Verma (23), a resident of the same area, and his friend Balendra (21), a resident of Alampur. Aman was married and had a medical store, while Balendra was unmarried and often visited his store.

They both were followers of Osho and had kept a status on their WhatsApp about the religious speaker. They both went to the graveyard on Tuesday night and consumed sulfuric acid, after which Balendra died on the spot, while Aman phoned his family and informed them about the incident.

Later, the family members reached the spot and took them to a nearby hospital, where they were declared dead by the doctors. The incident sent shockwaves through the area. There was a deep friendship between both the deceased.

Deceased Posted 3 Statuses On WhatsApp

They both were deeply influenced by Osho's lectures, and before committing suicide by consuming poison, Balendra had posted three WhatsApp statuses on his phone. In the first status, it can be seen that a few people are carrying a dead body with the caption, "You choose your path, I choose mine." The second status read, "Choose a job in life that gives you pleasure, not a business." The third status showed a corpse burning.
