A 60-year-old, waiting in queue outside a bank to exchange the demonetised notes in Meerut, suffered a heart attack and died Tuesday, his family claimed.
This was the third consecutive day when Aziz Ansari, a native of Darbhanga in Bihar, queued up outside the bank after failing to get his work done on the last two days, they said. He suffered the heart attack while waiting outside SBI’s Gola Kuan branch in Meerut.
Ansari made his last call to a relative in Meerut complaining of chest pain. “He called me up while he was still standing in the queue. He complained of chest pain. I took him to hospital but before medical aid could arrive, he passed away,” said Mohd Iliyas, his brother-in-law.
Employed at a power loom factory, Ansari had been paid in high value currency notes. Ansari is survived by four children, two of whom work in Delhi.
