    It was a shocking news. I was watching some programme in a channel, yesterday, then this flash news started appearing in the bottom. I could not believe it, because there was no report about his illness or anything. Then came the explanation that the death was due to heart attack. Though taken to hospital, he died on the way. Very, very unfortunate.
    Today's news says that police insisted on a post-mortom of the body, since the death occurred on the way.
    This is a great loss, anyway, to the lovers of music.
