A father of the Rakeshi siblings who were shot dead by police on suspicion of killing a policeman in Kerala last month, has died aged 65.

Rakeshwari Rana died on Friday, police said.

Rainsh Ranas father, who was killed in police custody, was the son of Rainshawa Rana and sister of Rani Rana.

Police said they were called to Rakeshawa’s house on January 25 when he was found dead in his room.

His body was found with a bullet in his head.
