New Delhi, Feb 1: Former Union minister and Indian Union Muslim League leader E Ahamed has passed away early on Wednesday in Delhi, a senior doctor has confirmed.

"E Ahamed has passed away at 2:15 am. His body has been taken to All India Institute Of Medical Sciences hospital for embalming (a method to preserve a corpse from decaying) as the facility is not available at RML," a senior RML doctor told PTI.

Ahamed's body will be taken to Kerala later on Wednesday. The MP from Kerala's Mallapuram suffered a cardiac arrest during the President's address to the joint sitting of Parliament on Tuesday.

At around 2.15 am, he was shifted to the RML trauma centre's ICU where he was put on ventilator and breathed his last.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi, party vice president Rahul Gandhi, leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, besides other party leaders had rushed to the hospital late at night and met Ahamed's family.

Ahamed's family had alleged that they were not allowed to meet the leader.
