Priest (73) harassed by rape accusation and extortion, ends life


A priest accused of rape committed suicide in the room at his temple premises near Raiyagam area in Rajkot on Wednesday night.

He was found hanging from the ceiling of his room on Thursday morning. Police identified the deceased as Magandas Nimavat (73). He was out on bail after he was arrested in a rape case in 2016. “Nimavat has left a suicide note in which he has alleged that the woman who accused him of rape, her husband and her brother-in-law were trying to extort money from him to strike a compromise in the case,” said an official from the University police station.
