    He was admitted to Fortis Hospital in New Delhi earlier this week where he was undergoing treatment. "He passed away at around 12 PM. He was undergoing treatment for ailments related to old age," the family friend said.

    Sachar, who was Chief Justice from August 6, 1985, to December 22, 1985, was associated with the People's Union for Civil Liberties, a rights group since his retirement.
