Jayalalithaa's relatives re-performed her last rites as per Hindu customs

Srirangapatna (Karnataka), Dec 14 (ANI): J. Jayalalithaa's relatives re-performed her last rites at Paschima Vahini on the banks of Cauvery River in the holy town of Srirangapatna on Tuesday.

They expressed apprehension that her soul would not attain 'moksha' because she was buried instead of being cremated as per strict Hindu customs. Chief priest Ranganath Iyengar performed the last rites, cremating a doll, meant to be her replica.

He said to help Jayalalithaa's soul attain 'moksha'; her body should have been cremated. Some rituals will be observed for five days to appease her soul.
