Noted journalist Dileep Padgaonkar died on Friday morning at Ruby Hall Clinic in Pune of multiple organ failure, nearly a week after he was admitted in a critical condition following a heart attack.

Dr Sanjay Pathare, medical director at the hospital, said that his kidneys had failed and he was immediately put on dialysis. Padgaonkar, 72, was a former editor of The Times of India.

Dr Prachee Sathe, chief intensivist at the hospital, said that Padgaonkar was on ventilator support since he was admitted on November 18. “He passed away due to multiple organ failure after the heart attack,” Sathe said.

PM Narendra Modi and Congress president Sonia Gandhi were among those who condoled Padgaonkar’s death. “Mr. Dileep Padgaonkar was a leading public thinker whose contribution to journalism will always be remembered. Pained by his demise. RIP,” Modi tweeted.
