According to reports, the picture was apparently taken minutes after the efforts of the doctors to resuscitate Harikrishna failed.

Reacting to the outrage caused by the selfie, the management of Kamineni hospital assured action against the employees.

Harikrishna, a former Rajya Sabha member and former Andhra Pradesh minister, was on his way to Nellore to attend a wedding when the car he was driving crashed into a road median on Nalgonda Highway.

The 61-year-old actor-turned-politician, Harikrishna was thrown out of the driver’s seat on the road and sustained critical head injuries. He was rushed to Kamineni Hospital.

 

Harikrishna was son-in-law of TDP president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

He started his film career in Telugu films as a child artist in 1960s.

Harikrishna was cremated with state honours in Hyderabad on Thursday.
