Amidst heart-rending scenes, the mortal remains of telecom engineer K Suryanarayan, killed by the Taliban militia in Afghanistan, were consigned to flames in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

The pyre was lit by Suryanarayan's six-year-old Satjya Teja. The body was brought in Hyderabad on Monday night from Delhi and kept at his residence at East Anandbagh colony in Malkajgiri.

While Manjula, wife of Suryanarayan, is undergoing treatment at a hospital after she attempted suicide by consuming phenyle on Monday, another woman Swapna, who claimed to be the second wife of Suryanarayan and having a nine-month-old baby Nitisha, was present at the funeral.

On the question of Swapna staking her claim to a portion of compensation amount by the Bahrain-based company Al-Moayed, which had employed Suryanarayan, Pankaj Sehgal, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Al-Moayed, said compensation would be given to the legitimate wife but the company officials were discussing the issue with legal experts.
