MUMBAI: Rabindra Sangeet legend Suchitra Mitra died on Monday and she was cremated at the Keoratola crematorium on Tuesday.

Mitra was 86years old. She was a professor and head of the music department for many years at the Rabindra Bharati University.

Students along with a number of eminent Rabindra Sangeet singers, including Mitra’s contemporary Dwijen Mukhopadhyay, paid tributes. West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhhadeb Bhattacharjee, Bengali actress Rituparna Sengupta, union minister Mukul Roy, city mayor Sovan Chatterjee, Left Front chairman Biman Bose, and several state ministers were also among those who paid their last respects to Mitra.

Born in 1924, Mitra was known for her rendition of Tagore songs.
