Thiruvananthapuram: Prominent playback singer Sangeetha Sajith, 46, who became popular among Malayalam film buffs through her song 'Ambili Poovettam...' from the 1998 movie 'Ennu Swantham Janakikutty', died here on Sunday.
Sangeetha, who had been undergoing treatment for kidney-related ailments, breathed her last at her sister's house here early morning on Sunday.
