The actor had also tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia in his post.

He was admitted at the Rajeev Gandhi Super Speciality hospital, Tahirpur and was shifted to Ayushman Hospital, Dwarka, on Saturday evening.

Mourning Rahul's demise Arvind Gaur wrote on Facebook, "Rahul Vohra is gone, my talented actor is no more. Only yesterday he had told me his life could have been saved if he got better treatment. He was shifted to Ayushman, Dwarka last evening but we could not save him. Please forgive us, we are all your culprits. My last respects".

Jyoti shared another photo from their wedding day on Facebook and wrote, "Our last meeting too remained incomplete. I don't know why God became so fond of you. Wherever you are, stay happy".

Jyoti has posted a video on Instagram of Rahul gasping for breath, and accused the hospital of not providing the proper treatment.
