West Bengal government on Wednesday paid last respect to KK with gun salute in Kolkata. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who supervised the proceedings, paid floral tributes to the late singer, whose body was kept at Rabindra Sadan for some time.

The 53-year-old singer’s body was brought to Rabindra Sadan after post-mortem examination was conducted at state-run SSKM Hospital, an official said. His mortal remains will be taken to the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport and handed over to his family, who will then fly to Mumbai, he said.

KK was declared “brought dead” by doctors of a hospital, where he was taken after he “fell unconscious” upon his return to a hotel from his concert on Tuesday, police said. Police have registered a case of unnatural death and opened an investigation.

Born in Delhi into a south Indian family, the versatile singer began his career with advertising jingles and recorded songs in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi and Bengali. His hits from the 2000s included Aankhon Me Teri from the movie Om Shanti Om and Khuda Jaane from Bachna Ae Haseeno.
