YSR's Dead Body Moved: What Will Happen to His Body and Family?
YSR, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Rajasekhara Reddy hs been found dead, and his body along with four others, was discovered in the Nallamala hills after a helicopter crash near Hyderabad.
His body, of which there are no photos in circulation, was brought to Hyderabad today, but it is badly burnt beyond recognition.
Specialists had to be brought in to move them they were so badly damaged. They have now undergone a post mortem examination.
The bodies were left at the site till specialists were flown in. Making matters worse was the heavy downpour and hostile terrain.
The commandos could find the bodies of YSR and his special secretary P Subramaniam, Chief Security Officer ASC Weseley and that of a pilot. It took some time to locate the body of one pilot.
The BEL-430 helicopter was piloted by Group Captain S K Bhatia and Captain M S Reddy, both of which died in the crash also.
The bodies were brought to the base camp at Kurnool district where thousands of people gathered to pay their respects. The helicopter was found in pieces and that suggested that a crash followed the fire.
YSR's body will be brought to the Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium in Hyderabad for the public to pay homage; the same stadium where he took his oath of office just 111 days ago.
His body will then be taken to Pulivendala, his home town for his last rights on Friday.
Meanwhile, the bodies of Subrahmanyam, Wesely, Bhatia and M S Reddy were shifted to their residences in Somajiguda, Shanti Nagar, Yapral in Bollarum area and Vidya Nagar areas respectively. Later, the body of Wesely will be taken to his native place Adanki in Prakasam district, reported Times Now.
YSR is survived by his wife Vijayalaxmi and his son, Member of Parliament Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, his daughter Sharmila and her children. His son in law, Brother Anil Kumar is currently in the United States and is returning now.
State Ministers and officials are in shock at what has happened.
YSR turned 60 on July 8 and had been in his second term of office for only 110 days.
