CCD Siddhartha's father unaware of son's death

The tragic death of Cafe Coffee Day founder VG Siddhartha has created ripples in the business sector and politics. The last rites of Siddhartha will be held in the evening hours in Chikmagalur district. Siddhartha is blessed with two sons and his eldest will do the honours.

Getting into details of Siddhartha's family, he is the only son of Gangaiah Hegde and Vasanthi couple. Gangaiah is 96 years old and about two weeks back he was admitted to Shanthaveri Gopala Gowda hospital in Mysore due to age related issues. The doctors who are treating Gangaiah said his condition is getting worse and may slip into coma. We hear that Gangaiah has no clue about this son's death.

Three days before Siddhartha went missing, he visited his father in hospital. Looking at his father, Siddhartha had tears in his eyes. Gangaiah was coffee planter too and Siddhartha was highly influenced by his father who was admired by many.

It's fate that Gangaiah can't take part in his son's cremation.
