INBRIEF Sunday, 10 April 2016 | PNS | in Bhubaneswar Low voltage adds to summer woes in B’ngir
Balangir: Rise in mercury coupled with low electric voltage and
water scarcity has thrown normal life out of gear in Balangir district. Amidst
such unbearable heat, a sunstroke death was reported in the district on Friday.
One Tashil Bag (52) of Lukapada died of sunstroke while he was returning home
after taking bath in a pond. When asked, CDMO Dr R.N Tripathy said the cause of
death can be ascertained after getting the postmortem report. This is the first
sunstroke death in the district this year.
