A state funeral will be accorded to eminent cartoonist R K Laxman, who died at the age of 94 after suffering multi-organ failure, officials said. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will attend the last rites of Laxman, who will be accorded the state funeral in Pune on Tuesday, an official from the chief minister’s office said.        

Creator of the ubiquitous mute spectator ‘Common Man’, Laxman was admitted to the hospital in Pune on January 17 for urinary infection.

He suffered multi-organ failure and was put on the ventilator. He died on Monday. Laxman, brother of late novelist R K Narayan, is survived by writer wife Kamala, retired journalist son Srinivas and daughter-in-law Usha.
