Gurgaon: Spiritual guru Jagadguru Kripalu Maharaj on Friday passed away at a private hospital here following a brain injury.

The 91-year-old godman was flown in from Allahabad on November 11 in a critical condition and was on ventilator support.

An emergency surgery was performed on him for an `acute subdural haemotoma` or brain injury, which he developed after he slipped in his Ashram few days back, hospital sources said.

He passed away at 7.05 am on Friday at a private hospital in Gurgaon.

He was the preceptor of Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat, a worldwide Hindu non-profit organisation with five main spiritual centers, four in India and one in the USA.
