Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed—a strong votary of Indo-Pak dialogue on Kashmir resolution and the man close to New Delhi—breathed his last at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences New Delhi on Thursday morning. He was 79.

Known as a suave politician who rose from a lawyer to first Muslim Home Minister of India and two-time Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mufti passed away at the AIIMS where he was being treated for sepsis and pneumonia since December 24, at 7.30 am. 

Sayeed, who took the contentious decision of allying with the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party after the Assembly elections in 2014 threw up a split verdict, was later laid to rest in South Kashmir’s Bijbehara, his native village.
