The body of the young boy was laid in the middle of the funeral grounds for people to file past it.
Since his death generated national interest, many people from across the country besieged the premise to have a look at the body before it was finally conveyed to the cemetery. The coffin used for his burial was half-opened for sympathizers to have a look at his face. The coffin is designed with a coffee color and looks very sleek. Since he is a young boy, the size of the coffin was reduced to fit his height.
A white cloth was later used to cover the coffin after all the sympathizers had finished looking. His father, who was the last person to see the face of his lifeless son could not hold his tears. He was very sad to know that his beloved son was truly gone and will never come back to life again.
