Kavita Karkare dies of brain haemorrhage

Kavita Karkare, wife of the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare who was killed in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, died at a city hospital on Monday after suffering brain haemorrhage.

“Kavita Karkare was declared brain dead on Monday morning,” a statement from P D Hinduja Hospital and Medical Research Centre, where she was undergoing treatment, said.

Kavita (57) was admitted to hospital on Saturday after she suffered brain haemorrhage. Later, she slipped into a coma.

Her children — two daughters and a son — had consented to donate her organs to needy persons, the statement from the hospital said.

Kavita has been vocal about the security lapses that she feels facilitated the terror attack and contributed to the death of her husband in an ambush by terrorists in south Mumbai on the night of November 26, 2008.

She had also been demanding better weapons, training and facilities for police personnel after her husband’s killing.
