The statement says: We the undersigned family members of Late Shri Vishnu Surya Wagh thank you all for your condolences and prayers in this time of bereavement. However, it is with deep sadness that we wish to inform you that we have been kept in dark about the news of his death and whereabouts of Vishnu Wagh. We did not have any information about him being taken to South Africa when his health was deteriorating.
Apart from grappling with the loss, we are also trying to gather facts about his death and would like to express our concerns about the manner in which the persons who accompanied him to South Africa has chosen to reveal this matter to public five days after the actual death, bypassing close family members and relatives.
We would appreciate if people wait for some more time for the truth about his death to emerge and refrain from calling us to inquire details about his last rites.
