The mortal remains of senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Arjun Singh were brought here today from Delhi in a special Indian Air Force helicopter.

The chopper carrying the body of the departed leader landed at Panwar airstrip in the district.

Large number of people raised slogans like 'Arjun Singh Amar Rahe' when the helicopter touched the base.

Singh's two sons, Ajay and Abhimanyu, daughter Veena Singh and his long time personal assistant, Mohammad Yunus, also arrived in the same helicopter.

From the airstrip, Singh's body will be taken to his ancestral village Sada Shivrajpur to enable people to pay their last respect to the departed leader, Congress sources said.

His last rites will be performed tomorrow near Churhat's Rao Sagar pond with full state honours, the sources added.

The 81-year-old leader died yesterday after a heart attack.
