India TV reported that he had been undergoing treatment at the hospital for a month and that he had been facing breathing difficulties.

Last year, he had stirred up a major controversy by claiming that 346 families had to flee Kairana in Uttar Pradesh because of threats from a 'particular community' and also released a list of Hindus who had to leave the town. However, he later claimed that the exodus was not communal in nature.

After his death on Saturday, prominent political leaders expressed their condolences.
