Hyderabad: A 24-year-old graduate from Andhra Pradesh who attended the Sunburn music event at Shamshabad, died in suspicious conditions, with injuries to his face and bleeding from the nose and ears, on Saturday night. RGI Airport police registered a case of suspicious death on Sunday.
According to Inspector G. Vijay Bhaskar Reddy of the RGIA police, the deceased has been identified as M Tulasi Ram from Bheemavaram in Andhra Pradesh.
On Saturday, Tulasi Ram and seven friends - M. Dileep, Surya Varma, K. Sai Vamshi, R. Suryanarayana Raju, R. Siva Karthik Varma, Sai Varun and Ramesh — had come to Hyderabad in a car to attend the Sunburn event, in which DJ Snake featured. The programme was held at GMR Arena at Shamshabad.
Inspector Reddy said that during the music event, Tulasi Ram collapsed and asked his friends to get some water. But before they could bring him the water, he had moved away. His friends searched for him for a while and then continued partying.
At about 10.15 pm, a woman at the event suffered fits. An ambulance was arranged to shift her to the hospital. Tulasi Ram then reappeared and also collapsed near the ambulance. Both of them were taken to Trident Hospital, where Tulasi Ram was advised to move on to Osmania General Hospital, as his condition was extremely critical. He passed away before reaching the hospital, said the inspector.
“We have found that all the youngsters consumed alcohol during their travel and also at the event. Tulasi Ram’s pulse was low when he was taken to Trident Hospital. Before he could be taken to OGH, he died. It is suspected that he could have suffered dehydration leading to a cardiac issue. We are waiting for the post-mortem report from the OGH mortuary," said Inspector Reddy.
Tulasi Ram’s cousin, M Naga Ganesh, has lodged a complaint with the cops stating that the death of his cousin seems to be suspicious as he had injuries to his face and was also bleeding from ears and nose. The inspector said that a case of suspicious death has been registered.
