One of the accused in the infamous Dadri lynching case died of kidney and respiratory failure at a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday.
Ravi was rushed to Lok Nayak Jaiprakash Hospital from district hospital in Noida in Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday after suffering “kidney failure”.
“He was brought here in a very bad condition, with kidney failure and high blood sugar level, around 12 noon. He died around 7 PM of kidney and respiratory failure,” Medical Superintendent of LNJP Hospital, Dr J C Passey said.
The 22-year-old was lodged in a jail in Gautam Buddh Nagar district.
It is also suspected that Ravi was suffering from dengue, though hospital authorities said, “medical report is still awaited.”
“We had done his dengue and chikungunya tests. But, it is only by tomorrow that we can say whether he was suffering from dengue or not, as the medical reports are not out yet,” Passey said on Tuesday.
In Dadri’s Bishada village, Mohammed Akhlaq (51) was dragged out of his house and killed by a mob in September last year on suspicion of eating beef, triggering communal tension in the region.
