Yesterday night, on the 6th of August, Sushma Swaraj, the former chief minister of Delhi and one of the really respected politicians in India, passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest following a myocardial infarction (heart attack). Her daughter, Bansuri Swaraj performed the last rites at the Lodhi crematorium in Delhi.

The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah, Defence Minister of India Rajnath Singh, Vice President of India Venkaiah Naidu, and senior BJP leader LK Advani were among the top politicians who laid wreaths during the last rites ceremony as Sushma Swaraj was accorded a State funeral.
