Kolkata: Kolkata Police have registered a case of ''unnatural death'' over the demise of renowned Bollywood singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK, and started an investigation, even as the main opposition BJP blamed the West Bengal government for ''lapses'', drawing a sharp retort from the ruling TMC which asked the saffron party ''not to politicise'' death.

A post-mortem examination of the singer's mortal remains was conducted and the report is awaited, the police said. "Police has spoken with the manager and other staffers of the hotel where KK had put up. A case of unnatural death has been registered by the police after the singer felt unwell before being taken to a hospital," an officer was quoted as saying.

"We are scrutinising the CCTV footage to understand what had happened before he was taken to the hospital," the police officer said, adding that two persons have been questioned in connection with the case.
