A prominent playback singer passed away on Sunday as a result of post-COVID problems while receiving treatment at a private hospital. Tapu Mishra who has sung a number of film songs in Odiya was 36 years old.

On May 10, her father also died as a result of COVID-19. Tapu Mishra was placed on ventilator support two days ago when her oxygen level plummeted to 45. Her lungs had also been severely damaged, according to sources at the hospital where she was hospitalized from May 19. Saturday night, her condition worsened and she breathed her last.

Mishra made her debut in the Odia film 'Kulanandan' and has since sung in over 150 films. She has also rendered several bhajans throughout the course of her two-decade career. As soon as word of her death circulated throughout the state of Odisha, condolences poured in from all around.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik tweeted, "Saddened to know about the passing away of popular Odia singer Tapu Mishra. Her memories as a singer will always be remembered in Odia music world. Heartfelt condolence to her family and friends."
