The mortal remains of Rajesh, who hails from the tribal community in Balle in H.D. Kote taluk whose tryst with the celluloid world was cut short when he fell off the second floor of his house in the city and died on Sunday, was laid to rest at his native place on Monday.

A large crowd, comprising his friends, people from the surrounding villages and his fans, visited the tribal hamlet at Nagarahole National Park to pay their last respects.
