New Delhi: Former chief minister Omar Abdullah expressed his shock and sympathy at the demise of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mufti Mohammad Sayeed at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) due to multiple organ failure here on Thursday at 7:15 am.
"Just heard the terrible terrible news of Mufti Sahib`s passing away. I`m shocked & deeply saddened. May he rest in peace," tweeted Abdullah.
"My heart felt sympathies to Mrs Syed, Mehbooba & the entire family in this most difficult of times. My & my family`s prayers are with them," he added.
Sayeed was admitted in a private ward in AIIMS on December 24 after he complained of fever and chest pain.
The 79-year-old was later detected with sepsis, decreased blood counts and pneumonia.
He was put on ventilator yesterday after his condition had started to deteriorate.
