Legendary music composer-singer Bappi Lahiri breathed his last on on Tuesday night following his battle with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. His son-in-law and grandson expressed their grief on the demise of their beloved family member. Bappi Da’s son-in-law Gobind Bansal shared, “It is a very sad day today for us. Dada has entertained the entire country and everybody loved him.”
Talking about how he passed away on Tuesday night, Bansal shared, “He had been admitted in the hospital for three weeks but was discharged and was back home. He also had his dinner last night at around 8:30-9 pm. But within half an hour of having his dinner, he got a heart attack. His pulse rate had gotten low. He was rushed to the hospital and the doctors declared at 11:44 that he is no more.” The cremation ceremony of the iconic singer will take place on Thursday morning after the arrival of Bappi’s son Bappa Lahiri from Los Angeles.

I still can’t believe that my dadu is no more.”
