Mortal remains of Pranab Mukherjee immersed in Ganga at Har ki Pauri

The mortal remains of former President Pranab Mukherjee were immersed in the Ganga at Har ki Pauri late Tuesday evening by his son Abhijit Mukherjee.

Before the immersion of the ashes, a ritual was also performed.

Noting that many people could not attend the cremation of Pranab Mukherjee because of the Covid-19 situation, his son Abhijit said the family would have considered taking the mortal remains of the former president to West Bengal for the last rites if restrictions were not in place.

Mukherjee died at the Army Research and Referral Hospital in Delhi on Aug 31.

He had been operated to remove a blood clot in his brain.

Mukherjee was the 13th President of India from 2012 to 2017.
