Odia Vocalist Tapu Mishra’s Last Rites Performed In Bhubaneswar

Bhubaneswar: Odia playback singer Tapu Mishra’s last rites were performed at Satya Nagar crematorium in Bhubaneswar on Sunday.

Her actor husband Deepak Pujahari lit the funeral pyre.

The 36-year-old vocalist breathed her last around 11 pm on Saturday while undergoing treatment at a private hospital here for post-COVID complications.

Tapu, whose father succumbed to COVID-19 on May 10, had developed mild symptoms and was in home isolation.

On May 31, her oxygen saturation level dropped to 45 and she was admitted to Sparsh Hospital here. She was shifted to IMS & SUM Hospital about 10 days ago following no improvement in her condition.

Though she had tested COVID-19 negative, her lungs were badly affected due to the infection and was on 100% ventilator support.
