New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed died on Thursday at AIIMS here after his platelets dropped dangerously.

Sayeed is the second Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister to die in office, the first one being Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah who died on September 08, 1982.

 

He was a crafty politician who took on the powerful Abdullah family and rose to become the country's first Muslim Home Minister.

 

Sayeed, 79, who took charge of the state on March 01, 2014 heading a PDP-BJP alliance, breathed his last this morning after remaining on ventilator for the past few days.
