Kolkata, May 20: Playback singer Arijit Singh’s mother, who had been admitted to a hospital after contracting COVID-19, passed away on Thursday.

Arijit Singh’s mother was admitted to AMRI Dhakuria hospital in Kolkata earlier this month.

In his recent posts on Facebook, the 34-year-old singer urged people to take precautions amid the deadly second wave of COVID-19 and said that he was ‘sacred.’

Sorry to poke you all again and again. I do not want to scare anybody but I am scared myself.

Kids are now getting symptomatic. For adults cases – all doctors, medical staff, scavengers, covid warriors, ambulance drivers, oxygen cylinder transport staff, cremation staff are getting either exhausted or down with COVID themselves.,” Singh wrote.

We are not ready for this. We don’t even have enough pediatric set up anywhere. It is my request – Please be careful. I am saying this again:- I know, we are a country where most people will die of hunger if they do not go to work. But, please do self lockdown if you can. Do not come out,” he added.
