On March 1, Naveen Shekarappa allegedly died as a result of a Russian bombing. Naveen's body will arrive at Bengaluru airport on Monday, March 21, according to Karnataka's chief minister.

Bengaluru: The family of Naveen Shekarappa Gyanagoudar, a 21-year-old Indian student who died in Kharkiv, Ukraine, during the Russian-Ukraine war, has opted to give his corpse for medical research, according to ANI.

The student's father, Shankarappa, stated that Naveen aspired to work in the medical industry. "My son wanted to achieve something in the medical field, but that didn't happen. At least his body can be used by other medical students for studies. That's why we at home have decided to donate his body for medical research."

Basavaraj Bommai, Karnataka's chief minister, said on Friday that Naveen's body would not arrive at Bengaluru airport on Sunday, but rather on Monday at 3 a.m., and he addressed the situation on Twitter.

Naveen's father also notified, "My son's body will reach Bengaluru on the 21st at 3 am. From there, the body will reach our village by 9 am. Then we'll perform Pooja as per the Veera Shaiva tradition, then we'll keep it for the public view and then we'll donate the body to SS Hospital Davanagere for medical studies."
