Ms Kavita Karkare, wife of top cop Hemant Karkare who lost his life in 26/11 terror attacks, passed away on Monday afternoon at a private hospital in Mumbai. Kavita suffered a brain hemorrhage and slipped into coma before breathing her last.
Kavita had been fighting for high-end weapons and better training to police personnel, authorities after her husband-former Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant killed on the night of Nov 26, 2008. She alleged that “poor-quality” bullet-proof jacket “resulted” in her husband’s death. Kavita is survived by her two daughters and a son. Her family has agreed to donate her vital organs and her body will be donated for medical research.
