His son, Sivaram reached Vijayawada airport on Tuesday and joined the procession at Ibrahimpatnam in Krishna district. Sivaram was in Kenya at the time of the incident.

Rao allegedly committed suicide at his residence in Hyderabad on Monday, which has triggered a political slugfest. TDP has alleged that Rao was being harassed by the YSR Congress Party while YSRCP accused TDP of humiliating Rao.
