On Wednesday, 29-year-old Raghavendra, who was suffering from jaundice, was declared dead by a hospital in Mangaluru. To perform his last rites, the family had to take the body to their native at Holekudige village in Mudigere, Chikkamagaluru district, which is about 165 kms from Mangaluru.

However, in order to take Raghavendra’s body to his village, his family had to travel 1 km through River Bhadra in a coracle. According to the residents, the village has never seen a bridge. As a result, the locals have to row about 1 km to access the mainland on any given day.
