The body of Rakesh Siddaramaiah, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's eldest son, who died of multi-organ failure at a hospital in Belgium, will be brought to Bengaluru on Monday.

The body will be taken to Mysuru and the last rites will be performed at the T Katur Farm House tomorrow evening, a government press release said.

Though the body will arrive at Kempegowda International Airport at Bengaluru in the morning, it will not be brought out of the airport, the release said.

It also said Siddaramaiah, along with his wife, daughter-in- law, younger son and other members of the family are accompanying the body.

They are reportedly boarding an Emirates Airlines flight, which is likely to take-off at 3.05pm local time from Brussels. The flight is scheduled to reach Bengaluru at 9.05am on Monday.

Immediately on arrival in Bengaluru, the family members will board a special flight to Mysuru, along with the body, the release said.

The body will be placed at the Karnataka Exhibition Grounds at Mysuru to enable friends, relatives and public to pay their respects between 11am and 1.30pm. It will be then taken to the T Katur Farm House for the last rites around 3pm or 4 pm, officials said.

39-year-old Rakesh, who died on Saturday, was undergoing treatment at Antwerp University Hospital in Brussels, where he was rushed to on Tuesday after he developed sudden pancreas-related complications. He had been on a European tour with his friends since last week.

Authorities have appealed to the public not to assemble at the Kempe Gowda International Airport as the body is not being brought out of the airport.
