Man dies in Bengal after collapsing in ATM queue

cricketKolkata, (IANS) A man lost his life standing in a queue in front of an ATM outlet in West Bengal on Saturday as the people’s struggle for cash continued on the third day of the new month.

Kallol Roy Chowdhury, 52, collapsed in front of a State Bank of India ATM outlet outside Hooghly district’s Bandel railway station, police said.

Roy Chowdhury, a resident of Behala in south Kolkata, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee later condoled the family of the deceased and indirectly blamed the Narendra Modi-led central government for the “unfortunate toll” in the nation post demonetisation.

“Unfortunate death toll continues… This morning Kallol Roy Chowdhury collapsed and died in front of SBI ATM at Bandel station,” Banerjee tweeted.

“My condolences to the bereaved family. Is Modi babu listening?” she added.
