The personal assistant of Haryana Congress leader Kuldeep Bishnoi died in AIIMS on Tuesday, police said.
According to a senior police officer, they received information from AIIMS on Monday regarding the admission of Sukumar Powriya in the hospital.
He died on Tuesday.
The police are waiting for the post-mortem report to know the exact cause of death, they said.
A Rs 150 crore worth five-star hotel in a prime business space of Gurgaon was attached by the Income-Tax Department, considering it a "benami" asset of Bishnoi and his brother, officials said on Tuesday.
The action by the department came in the backdrop of the raids conducted by it on 13 premises linked to Bishnoi in Haryana, Delhi and Himachal Pradesh on July 23 on charges of alleged tax evasion.
The said hotel entity, they said, and properties held by it are "the benami assets of Kuldeep Bishnoi and Chander Mohan (Bishnoi's brother)."

The two brothers are sons of late former Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal. While Bishnoi is a Congress MLA from the Adampur constituency, Mohan is a former Deputy CM of the state.
