Union Rural Development Minister of Narendra Modi led BJP Govt – Gopinath Munde passed away on Tuesday morning after he met with a road accident in Delhi. Munde was admitted to the AIIMS trauma centre after he met with a road accident on way to the Delhi airport.
According to doctors, Munde was sitting on the back side of his Maruti SX4 car when the accident took place. A speeding Indica jumped a traffic signal and dashed into Munde’s car from the side at around 6.20 am. When Munde was brought to the hospital, there was no spontaneous breathing, no pulse, bilateral pupils dilated and no cardiac activity. A doctor said that CPR was immediately started and continued for about 50 minutes but he could not be revived. He said that Munde breathed his last at 7.20 am. Though the doctor did not confirm a cardiac arrest, he said that the death could have been caused due to a cardiac condition.
The doctor said, “Munde was hypertensive and a sugar patient. He was already taking medicines. Right now there are no major external injuries on his body. We cannot say anything but clinically we might say that he had a sudden cardiac death”.
The body has been shifted to the mortuary for postmortem. A board has been formulated by the head of forensics to conduct the postmortem.
A Delhi Police arrested the driver of the car, which hit Munde’s car. The Delhi Police said that the driver was alone in the car, adding that a probe has been ordered.
