Sevadasji was acquitted. He ran to the temple crying aloud, "Hathiram! Hathiram!" (Hathi means an elephant Ram - the God Rama). By this incident Sevadasji was known as Hathiram Bhavaji.
The peope who beat him, feel at Sevadasji's feet, and begged his pardon. He was respected as the realized soul and was known as the Mahant - Great Soul.
Later the East India Company gave the entire temple administration to Sevadasji Mahant. He improvised the facilities to the pilgrims as well administered the temple maintenance to the expectations of every one.
