Hours after the demise of KK, his wife Jyothy Krishna, son Kunnath Nakul and daughter Kunnath Tamara reached Kolkata on Wednesday morning. As per the team, KK’s body is all set to be flown back to Mumbai after the autopsy. Meanwhile, Kolkata police have lodged a case of unnatural over the death of the singer. His body was taken to a government hospital from the private hospital, where he was taken to on Tuesday night, for autopsy. According to police sources, there were two injuries spotted on the singer’s body.

The case has been lodged at New Market Police Station – the jurisdictional police station of the hotel area, according to sources. A police official said that they are going to talk to the hotel authorities and examine the CCTV footage.

Meanwhile, KK’s manager Ritesh Bhatt told the media that the singer started feeling unwell in the car while returning to the hotel. He had reportedly said that he was feeling cold and asked the driver to switch off the AC. He had complained that he was having cramps in his arms and feet. In fact, the singer had reportedly posed with fans for photos. He collapsed after reaching his hotel room.

On the other hand, complaints of massive mismanagement on Tuesday at the concert venue, Nazrul Mancha, surfaced soon after the demise of KK. According to the attendees, there was a massive gathering. A fan complained that the AC was not working properly and the singer was sweating profusely during his performance. A fan tweeted a video and wrote, “It wasnt an open auditorium. watch it closely u can see the way he was sweating, closed auditorium, over crowded. Legend had to go due to authority's negligence. Not KK”

Bangla band Fossils’ lead singer Rupam wrote on his social media post, “I have experienced Nazrul Mancha when it is overcrowded. AC stops working. Audience gather around the stage and we find it difficult to breathe. This has been happening for a long time. I have spoken about it. I have recently performed there and faced a similar situation. It is time that people understand how we endure physically to perform. Also, India’s climate is essentially not cold.”
