Nashik (Maharashtra): Evergreen star Dev Anand’s ashes were immersed in the Godavari river in Nashik Wednesday evening by his son Suneil, a family friend said.

“Suniel just finished immersing the ashes of his father in the holy waters of the Godavari river. I accompanied him there,” Mohan Churiwala, a close associate and family friend told IANS over the phone.

“Also accompanying Suniel was former Maharashtra’s director general of police Ajit Parasnis, who was a close friend of Dev Sahab and his family,” Churiwala added.

A memorial service for Dev Anand, who passed away following a cardiac arrest in London last week will be held at the famous Mehboob Studio here Friday. “Condolence prayer meeting for Dev Anand will be held on Friday between 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Mehboob Studio in Bandra,” Churiwala said.

The meet is expected to be attended by the who’s who of the Hindi film industry, for which the actor will always be alive like a guiding star.
