The deceased was identified as Manjappa, a city resident, who collapsed near gate number seven while coming out after the function attended by nearly 50,000 Congress supporters from across the state.

He was given water to drink, after which he complained of chest pain and was immediately rushed to a private hospital just opposite the stadium where he was declared brought dead.

"It could have been a massive heart attack but the actual cause of death will be ascertained only after the post-mortem is conducted", police said.
