Savarkar kin dies at 67

Right-wing activist Himani Savarkar, who hails from the family of Veer Savarkar and Nathuram Godse, passed away in Pune on Sunday night. She was 67 and has been ailing for some time.

She is the daughter of Gopal Godse and niece of the Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse. She is also a daughter-in-law of Narayan Savarkar, who was a brother of Vinayak Savarkar. Himani Savarkar is a leader of the Hindu Mahasabha party and the President of Abhinav Bharat, which has been linked to the Malegaon 2008 blasts. Abhinav Bharat was named after the Abhinav Bharat Society, an organisation founded by Vinayak Savarkar in 1905.
