The final rites of Ramesh - the personal assistant of former deputy chief minister G Parameshwara - who was found hanging from a tree in Jnanabharati campus in Bengaluru on Saturday, were conducted at his native village, Melahalli in the taluk on Sunday. Hundreds of people took part in the last rites which were performed as per Vokkaliga tradition. Mohith, the son of Ramesh, lit the pyre.
