Nizamabad: A groom died within hours after his wedding in Bodhan on late Friday night. His death has been attributed to a heart condition, though some friends and relatives said that the victim collapsed due to high decibel sound during the marriage procession. Mangali Ganesh, 24, of Thattikot in Bodhan married his close relative from Salura on Friday. The wedding procession took place on a grand scale on Friday afternoon.
Following the request of friends and relatives, Ganesh and his wife joined in the dance to music provided by a DJ after the ceremony. Ganesh collapsed while dancing and the relatives immediately took him home, where he complained of chest pain. He was taken to a private hospital in Nizamabad, where he was declared brought dead.
Dr Naga Raju, a private medical practitioner at Khandgoan and relative of the victim, said, “We never expected such a young man to suffer a heart stroke as he was not into bad habits.”
The family members of Ganesh said he had complained of chest pain a week ago, Dr Raju said. Relatives and friends in large numbers attended last rites of Ganesh on Saturday.
When contacted, Bodhan circle inspector P. Rakesh said that Ganesh died of a heart attack and it was a death due to natural causes. “We have not yet received any complaint in this regard,” he said. He discounted reports that loud music had caused the death.
Ganesh was earlier working in the Gulf before returning to Bodhan. Since then he has been working in a hair cutting salon....
