The cremation of Madhavi Raje Scindia, 76, will be held at 5 pm at "Amma Maharaj Ki Chhatri", a place reserved for the funeral of members of the erstwhile royal family of Gwalior, sources close to the Union minister said.

A large number of people gathered at the airport to have a last glimpse of Madhavi Raje chanting slogans in her praise. The door of the ambulance was also kept open for some time so that people could see the mortal remains.

Her body will be placed at the Rani Mahal, which is part of the Jai Vilas Palace, to enable people to pay their last respects.

Members of the royal family of Nepal and erstwhile princely states of the country will attend the funeral, the sources said.

Senior BJP and Congress leaders are expected to attend the cremation that is scheduled to take place around 5 pm on Thursday, they said.
