Amritsar: Padma Shri recipient and noted Sikh spiritual singer Nirmal Singh died of coronavirus at a hospital in Amritsar, Punjab early on Thursday. He was 62 years old.
“His risk factor increased due to his bronchial asthma,” NDTV quoted a Punjab health official as saying.
Nirmal Singh, a former ‘’Hazuri Raagi’ at Golden Temple, had recently returned from a foreign trip and was admitted to hospital after he complained of breathlessness and dizziness on March 30.
According to officials, he had held a large religious gathering in Delhi, Chandigarh and some other places after his return.
His two daughters, son, wife, a driver and six others who were with him at these events have been isolated at a hospital.
