Legendary Indian classical vocalist Pandit Jasraj was on Thursday cremated with state honours in the presence of his family members and close friends in Mumbai.

The 90-year-old music doyen, who belonged to the Mewati Gharana, passed away on Monday following a cardiac arrest at his home in New Jersey, America. 

 

He was in the United States when the coronavirus-forced lockdown was announced and had decided to stay back in the country. 

Pandit Jasraj's son, Shaarang Dev Pandit, performed the last rites, which were followed by a 21-gun salute at Vile Parle's Pawan Hans Crematorium.
