Mr Janjua's body was discovered by his friend and taken to Cooper Hospital for post mortem. "He was not feeling well so I took him to the hospital last night where he was diagnosed with acidity. In the morning I got a call from his wife, who stays in Punjab, saying he was not answering his phone. When nobody answered the door, we called the police and discovered he was dead," his friend told the press.
Additional Commissioner of Police (north region) Fatehsingh Patil told news agency PTI that Mr Janjua was found dead in his apartment in Goregaon. However, he refused to comment on whether the death was from natural causes or a case of suicide.
A popular Punjabi singer from Khanna near Ludhiana, Labh Janjua shot to fame with his song Mundeyan ton bach ke rahin, produced by 'Punjabi MC'. His other hits include Dance Pe Chance from Rab Ne Banaa Di Jodi, Soni De Nakhre from Partner and more recently, London Thumakda from Queen.
