Udupi: Honnayya Shetty (65), a resident of Chitpady here, paid with his life for a costly error of mistaking insecticide for soft drink and died of its effects in the hospital.
He had done it out of thirst and in a hurry on Dec 2. As he began vomitting all of a sudden, the people at home suspected that it was because of the toxic effects of the insecticide which was being used outside. He was taken to a hospital in Manipal.
He died in the early hours of Friday. A case has been registered in the town police station.
