Dehradun: Ashes of former Vice President
Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, who passed away in Jaipur last week,
were immersed in river Ganges at Haridwar today.

Priests performed various rituals as the ashes were
immersed in the sacred river in the presence of a large number
of people.

Earlier, the urn containing the ashes was brought to
the holy town, situated in the foothills of the Himalayas, by
the family members.

Hailed as the doyen of Rajasthan politics, Shekhawat,
affectionately called "Babo Sa", died of cardiac arrest at the
age of 87 in Jaipur last Saturday.
