Doctors at the hospital said Asha suffered from advanced malignancy (advanced form of cancer) when she was brought to the institute.

"She breathed her last in the hospital around 7 PM. Her family including Digvijay Singh was present when she passed away," a senior doctor said.

Asha was also treated at a US hospital for cancer a few months ago. She is survived by four daughters and one son.
