New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday condoled the death of Thailand King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
 
"The people of India and I join the people of Thailand in grieving the loss of one of the tallest leaders of our times, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who was widely revered by his people. My thoughts are with his countless well-wishers and family," the Prime Minister said.
 
The Thai King, the world's longest-reigning monarch, died on Thursday in Bangkok at the age of 88, according to the Royal Household Bureau.
 
The King, who died at 3.52 p.m. (8.52 a.m. GMT), ruled the kingdom for seven decades and was revered by the Thai public as a semi-divine figure, Efe news reported.
 
He passed away in Siriraj Hospital, where he had received hemodialysis treatment on October 8 after his health worsened during the weekend.
