Hazarika to be cremated on Tuesday

Assam is well prepared to bid tearful farewell to veteran singer Bhupen Hazarika who passed away in Mumbai on Saturday. The mortal remains would reach Guwahati on Monday morning and would be kept at the Judges’ Field in the city to help the fans pay their last respect to the legend.

His body will reach the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport via a Jet Airways flight around 11.30am on Monday. The coffin will be taken to his ancestral home at Nizarapara.

The body would be taken for cremation in the afternoon on Tuesday at the Brahmaputra riverbank with full state honour. The decision was taken at the cabinet meeting held on Sunday evening in Dispur.
