"President Kalam was brought to the hospital at 7 pm. When he brought in there was no sign of life. He was taken to ICU to try and revive him, which was futile," hospital sources told NDTV.

The government will declare a seven-day national mourning, reported Press Trust of India, quoting Union Home Secretary LC Goel.

Paying a special tribute to Dr Kalam later in the evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "My mind is filled with so many memories, so many interactions with him. Always marvelled at his intellect, learnt so much from him."

Home Minister Rajnath Singh tweeted, "Deeply saddened at the sudden demise of the former president of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. He was an inspiration to an entire generation."
