Mulki: A Ganapati Kheni, special tahsildar in the hobali office of the revenue department, suffered a heart attack while on duty around noon on Tuesday.
He had just walked into a restaurant located near the sub-office. Feeling tired, he is said to have collapsed on the floor.
Those around and his colleagues shifted him to a private hospital in Mangaluru. He is under observation in the ICU of the hospital.
Kheni hails from Karwar. Ever since a new post at the hobali-level here four years ago, he has been serving here as special tahsildar.
