Puttaparthi, Jun 17: The Sai Baba Central Trust members have announced the details of the wealth recovered from private chamber, Yajur Mandir of spiritual guru Sai Baba. According to a statement released by Sai Baba Trustee RJ Rathnagar 11.5 crore rupees, 98 kilo gold and 307 kilo silver have been recovered from Sai's chamber.

RJ Rathnagar said the cash has been deposited in the Bank Account of Central Trust with the State Bank of India, Prashanti Nilayam. Gold, silver and jewelery were assessed by the certified valuer, approved by the Income Tax department.

Unofficial reports claimed that twenty people spent 36 hours to count the money recovered from the Yajur Mandir.

Sai Baba Central Trust members decided to open the Yajur Mandir after allegations of smuggling valuables from the chamber. The chamber was closely guarded and entry was restricted to Sai Baba's close aide Satyajit. The chamber was closed since the Baba was hospitalized on Mar 28.

The counting process by students of the Satya Sai Educational Institute was assisted by Bank officials with currency counting machines.
