Lahiri died due to OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea). "Lahiri had been admitted to the hospital for a month and was discharged on Monday.

He died due to OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) shortly before midnight," Dr Deepak Namjoshi told PTI.

Tributes for the legendary musician poured in on social media from Akshay Kumar, Raveena Tandon, Ajay Devgan among others. Akshay wrote, "Today we lost another gem from the music industry... Bappi Da, your voice was the reason for millions to dance, including me. Thank you for all the happiness you brought through your music. My heartfelt condolences to the family. Om Shanti."
