Chamarajanagar: Seer Sri Immadi Gurumalla Swamiji (42) of Kabbina Koleshwara Mutt, Gopalapura in Gundlupet taluk died of snake bite on Saturday.

The seer had taken over the reins of the Mutt a year and a half ago. The seer was at the banana field supervising the pruning of leaves when he was bitten by a cobra.

Soon he was rushed to the government hospital in Gundlupet. As his condition was critical the doctors advised to shift him to district hospital in Chamarajanagar where the seer is learnt to have succumbed later.

The last rites will be performed at the village on Sunday.

The seer who was known for his avid interest in agriculture had taken up farming at 25 acres of lands belonging to the Mutt.

A native of Bedarapura vllage, the seer was known by the name Girish before taking the religious vow.
