Gulshan Kumar, the founder of T-Series, was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. He made many albums on Lord Shiva, which are being listened to today on the occasion of Mahashivratri. Gulshan Kumar had also built many temples of Bhole Shankar. He also got the Nageshwar temple rebuilt. A grand meditation and a Shiva statue in Padmasana posture has been installed in the premises of the temple. After living a struggling life, he had achieved a special position with his music and passion for it, but some people did not like his progress. You all must know this thing that Gulshan Kumar was murdered.
Gulshan Kumar used to visit Shiva temple every day and offer prayers. On August 12, as usual, he had come out of the house to worship Shiva. Little did he know that that day was going to be the last day of his life. On 12 August 1997, his body was riddled with 16 bullets outside the Jiteshwar Mahadev temple.
Although the informer had informed the police about Gulshan’s murder, but it was not taken seriously. Abu Salem knew that Gulshan Kumar goes to the Shiva temple every morning before leaving the house, during which a plan was made to kill him. On the day Gulshan Kumar was killed, he had gone to the temple without the gunman found by the Uttar Pradesh Police. Because he got sick a few days ago.
That day at exactly 10:40 in the morning he finished the worship in the temple and as he headed towards his car, an unknown man with long hair came and stood near him, and he shouted and said, ‘Have done a lot of worship, now go upstairs to worship. According to eyewitnesses, the man shot Gulshan Kumar as soon as he spoke this. The bullet hit him directly on the head.
