Amar Singh dies at 64

Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh died at the age of 64 on Saturday. He was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Singapore for several months now. He is survived by wife Pankaja and twin daughters. Back in 2013, Amar Singh had suffered kidney failure in Dubai. Earlier in March 2020 when rumors surfaced about Amar Singh's death, the former Samajwadi Party leader had said: "Tiger Zinda Hai." 

According to the latest details, Amar Singh had recently undergone a second kidney transplant. The transplant was successful and he was recovering. However, there was a wound in the wall of his abdomen which wasn't healing and became infectious. The infection made it difficult for him to survive. The doctors tried to revive him but failed.

Singh's mortal remains are being handed over to his family, and will most likely be brought to Delhi.
