Kavita Karkare, wife of slain anti-terrorism squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare who died fighting terrorists during the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, died at the PD Hinduja Hospital on Monday following a brain haemorrhage. She had slipped into coma after suffering from brain hemorrhage and cardiac complications.

After the doctors declared Kavita Karkare dead on Monday, her children were approached for organ donation by the hospital. The family - two daughters and son - have consented for donating her organs.

Kavita's husband Hemant Karkare, then Maharashtra ATS chief, died defending Mumbai in the November 26, 2008 attacks.

He was killed on the night of 26/11 near Cama Hospital, along with Additional Police Commissioner Ashok Kamte and senior police inspector Vijay Salaskar.
