Former Uttarakhand Governor Sudershan Agarwal died on Wednesday after prolonged illness at a hospital in New Delhi, an official statement said. He was 88.

Governor Baby Rani Maurya condoled the death of Agarwal and prayed for the peace of his soul, a Raj Bhavan statement said. Agarwal was an efficient administrator and a great social worker, she said.
