New Delhi: Singer Arijit Singh’s mother Aditi Singh passed away due to Covid-19 related complications at 11 pm on Wednesday. She was undergoing treatment for the viral infection for quite some time and breathed her last in a Kolkata hospital.
Aditi Singh (52) had tested negative for coronavirus on Monday but succumbed to a cerebral stroke late on Thursday, authorities at the hospital said.
“She passed away last night around 11 pm. Singh, admitted with COVID, was put on ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation). She tested negative on Monday but succumbed to a cerebral stroke last night,” read an official statement issued by the medical establishment.
According to an TOI report, family members have taken her mortal remains to their home at Jiaganj in Murshidabad on Thursday morning.
Many celebrities including Srijit Mukherji and Swastika Mukherjee had taken to social media to amplify a request for blood donors for her. However, Arijit Singh later issued a statement, asking his fans to not extend help only to him just because he is a celebrity. He has asked everyone to treat all the patients equally and be equally helpful to all.
“It is my humble request to those who are trying to help me at this hour, Please Do not overdo things just because you see a name called Arijit Singh. Until we learn to respect each individual, We are not going to elevate ourselves from this disaster. I am thankful to people who reached out and helped but please remember we are all human beings. Every individual is priority,” he had written.
