The actor’s family can be seen bidding him an emotional farewell.
Sushant Singh Rajput's ashes were immersed in the Ganga river by his family members. In a picture that has surfaced online, the actor's father KK Singh and sister Shweta Singh Kirti can be seen bidding him a tearful adieu. The rest of the rituals will be done at their house in Patna.
In a Facebook post earlier on Thursday, Sushant's US-based sister Shweta said that she reached Patna on Wednesday. She also urged everyone to remember him with love and give him a 'very loving and happy farewell'.
"Today we will be doing Asthi Visarjan (Ashes Immersion) for Bhai. I again want to ask all to pray for him and send him off with all the fond memories and unconditional love in your hearts. Let's celebrate his life and give him a very loving and happy farewell," she wrote.
Sushant was found dead at his Mumbai home on Sunday. The police said it was a case of death by suicide and his post-mortem revealed that the cause of death was asphyxiation. No suicide note was found.
