Assamese litterateur Indira Raisom Goswami, who had taken the initiative to bring the Ulfa to the negotiating table, on Tuesday passed away at a hospital here after prolonged illness.

The condition of 69-year-old Goswami, who suffered a cerebral stroke in February last, turned critical last night and she was declared dead at 7.45am, Guwahati Medical College Hospital Superintendent R Talukdar said.

The Jnanpith award winning writer was taken to a hospital in New Delhi earlier this year for further treatment but was brought back here in July and was undergoing treatment at the GMCH since then.

She was in a paralysed state and on ventilator support.
