UK: Hare Krishna temple president quits over beating scandal
Saturday July 19, 2008 Hare Krishna
The president of a Hare Krishna temple in Letchmore Heath has been forced to resign after being found guilty of beating students in India.
The first wave of allegations against Gauri Das was investigated in May 1995 by ISKCON. At the time, it acknowledged the beatings but said they were not “serious”.
After the founding of the organisation’s child protection branch, based in Florida, the investigation into Gauri Das was reopened in 2006, resulting in Monday’s report.
