Unable to make arrangements for his daughter’s wedding due to cash crunch arising from demonetisation, a 50-year-old man reportedly died after suffering cardiac arrest here on Monday night.
Victim Sukhdev Singh’s daughter was to get married on November 18. When he went to the market to buy grocery items and jewellery on Monday, shopkeepers refused to accept the old banknotes, said Darshan Singh, sarpanch of his village, Kalla.
“My husband was very worried when he returned from market. At night, he complained of chest pain and died of cardiac arrest,” said Sukhdev’s wife, Surjit Kaur.
