Lata Mangeshkar’s demise: No judicial proceedings in Bombay HC today
Mumbai: Bombay high court has suspended all its judicial proceedings for today at all its benches to mourn the death of legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar. Subordinate Courts in Maharashtra, South and North Goa, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, and Daman and Diu and Silvassa will remain closed on Monday, according to an official statement.
Lata Mangeshkar passed away on Sunday morning due to multiple organ failure at the Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai. She was admitted to the hospital in early January after she was diagnosed with coronavirus disease (Covid-19) and pneumonia.
