Bantwal: Avinash Shetty (34), son of the late progressive farmer Narayana Shetty of Madandoor in the taluk, died of a heart attack last week.
He was an active person and was a hardworking agriculturist. As he was busy in cutting grass in his areca farm around noon, he suddenly complained of chest pain and collapsed. He was rushed to a hospital in Siddakatte, but he was already found to have breathed his last.
He had a late marriage, only four months ago. He had waited until his new house was completed and the housewarming had taken place. Soon thereafter his marriage had taken place in an auditorium in Kaikamba near BC Road-Jodumarga.
He is survived by mother, wife, two brothers and two sisters.
