The mortal remains of MP were brought to the capital on Sunday evening from Singapore, where he breathed his last, sources close to the family said.

Singh (64) died in a Singapore hospital, where he was undergoing treatment for kidney-related ailments, on Saturday.

His mortal remains were brought to Delhi in a chartered aircraft, the sources said, adding that Singh's wife Pankaja was also on the plane.

The cremation will take place at the Chhatarpur crematorium on Monday morning.

Due to Covid-19 protocols, Singh's last rites will be performed in the presence of a limited number of people, the sources said.

The former leader had undergone a kidney transplant in 2011 and was not keeping well for a long time.
