Veteran singer-music director Bappi Lahiri -- who wielded the baton at the age of 17 -- passed away here late on Tuesday night, an official said.

He was 69 and breathed his last in the Criticare Hospital where he was admitted for certain post-Covid issues.

Prominent Bollywood personalities have expressed shock and condoled the demise of Lahiri, who was fondly known as "Bappi Da" in the industry.
