SRINAGAR, JULY 27: Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, has expressed deep shock and grief over the sad demise of former President of India and Bharat Ratna, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam today.
Dr. Kalam collapsed while delivering lecture at the Indian Institute of Management in Shillong, Mehgalaya, and later passed away in the Bethany Hospital.
