Mysuru: A junior pontiff at Devanur Mutt in Nanjangud allegedly committed suicide by plunging into River Cauvery at Mudukutore, on Sunday.

It is alleged that the 60-year-old seer Shivappa Devaru was allegedly suffering from illness and depression and this may have forced him to take the extreme step, it is said.

Seer Shivappa had gone missing for two days from the mutt. On Monday, the news of his alleged suicide spread everywhere, alerting the police to visit the spot.

A native of Kaliyuru in Kollegal taluk, Chamarajanagar, Seer Shivappa had been staying at the mutt for the last 45 years.

Talakadu police have registered the case and are investigating.
