An Indian court has granted permission for the followers of a long-dead spiritual guru to preserve his body in a freezer.
Ashutosh Maharaj, founder of the sect Divya Jyoti Jagriti Sansthan (Divine Light Awakening Mission), died of a suspected heart attack in January 2014.
But his followers insist he is only meditating deeply, and will one day return to life.
They have kept his body in a commercial freezer at his vast ashram in Punjab.
The judgement by Punjab and Haryana High Court ends a three-year-old dispute between the guru’s disciples and Dalip Kumar Jha, who claims to be his son.
