“He (Mohan Nadkarni) suffered from a chest infection a fortnight back from which he did not recover. Past couple of years he was suffering from age-related problems which hampered his movements, otherwise he was mentally very fit,” Dev told IANS over phone early Wednesday.

He is survived by his wife Suniti and only son Dev, a writer settled in New Zealand.
