A 52-year-old farmer from Moga, who complained of heart problem because of cold weather conditions, died while getting treated in a hospital, confirmed the district administration officials, here, on Tuesday.  

The deceased was identified as Jagdev Singh—son of Gopal Singh—a resident of Kotla Meher Singh Wala, sub-division Baghapurana, district Moga.

Jagdev had joined the agitation a few weeks back. Soon after this, he complained of uneasiness due to high blood pressure.

His companions brought him back, and got him admitted in a hospital at Bathinda where he died while getting treated on late Monday night.

Jagdev was not a member or an activist of any farm or labour organisation. He was a common farmer who was protesting along with other people of his village.
