Former Indian president, Pranab Mukherjee has died at 84 after he tested positive for coronavirus.
Mukherjee had emergency surgery for a blood clot in his brain on August 10 at New Delhis Army Hospital Research and Referral after suffering a fall.

The hospital said he also tested positive for coronavirus after the surgery and his condition was critical.

He remained in a coma after the operation and later suffered septic shock after developing a lung infection.
