According to the statement, the last rites were to be held on February 17 as they were waiting for Bappi’s son Bappa Lahiri to return from Los Angeles. “It’s a deeply sad moment for us. Our beloved Bappi Da has left for heavenly abode last midnight. The cremation will take place on the arrival of Bappa from LA tomorrow mid-morning. We are seeking love and blessings for his soul,” the statement read.

Bappi’s doctor Deepak Namjoshi confirmed the news of his demise and said that the legendary singer died on Tuesday night due to multiple health issues. He said, “He had been admitted to the hospital for a month and was discharged on Monday. But his health deteriorated on Tuesday and his family called for a doctor to visit their home, following which he was brought to the hospital. He had multiple health issues. He died due to OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) last night.”
