On June 6th, 1993, Sai Baba's apartment was invaded by five devotees (one of whom left before the others were entrapped). The 'mastermind' of the intrusion, who was elsewhere, later witnessed to police that they claimed they had a telegram for him and wished to talk to him about corruption by his valet and others in the ashram. Sai Baba's valet Radhakrishna Menon and helpers had blocked them from access for a long time and in a scuffle with them the intruders killed the valet. This took place after dark. Sai Baba sounded an alarm which brought out observers of the scene. Among them was Divya (Eileen Weed), who was then residing with Sai Baba's elder sister Venkamma in the latter's apartment which was just above of the temple with an overview. The day after the event, Eileen wrote a letter to her pafrents describing her experience, which she published on the internet many years later on, as follows:-
