Amar Singh’s mortal remains to reach Delhi from Singapore today
The mortal remains of former Samajwadi Party leader and Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh, who passed away on Saturday in Singapore due to kidney-related ailments, will be brought to India on a special flight.
The flight is expected to land in Delhi at 2 pm.
Sources quoted by Zee News have said that Singh’s relatives and close friends have reached Delhi to attend his funeral. It is learnt that his wife Pankaja and his twin daughters were present at the hospital in Singapore when he breathed his last.
Singh had been at ill health for some time and was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Singapore over the last couple of months. He had earlier undergone a kidney transplant. He had suffered kidney failure in 2013.
In March, Singh had posted a short video message on Twitter from the hospital bed in which he made an appeal to all his followers to support Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the fight against coronavirus.
