After returning home, he asked his wife for food. Gulati, 51, suffered a heart attack while having his food. He was rushed to a hospital nearby but doctors declared him ‘brought dead’.

The Reserve Bank of India has capped withdrawals from PMC Bank after it emerged last month that bank’s former chairman, ex-managing director along with a few others were involved in an alleged Rs 4,355 crore scam.
People having an account in the troubled bank could only withdraw Rs 1000 earlier, however, the limit was raised to Rs 40,000 a couple of days ago.
Taking note of the situation, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman last week also directed RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das to address the woes of depositors.
