ELURU: An MBA student aspiring to become a sub-inspector of police died while attempting to complete the 1,600 metre run that was part of physical fitness tests for the SI posts in Eluru Range on Tuesday. The youngster who collapsed during the run on Monday was shifted to Vijayawada for better treatment, but was declared brought dead by doctors.

LVC Sekhar Viswanatham (26), an MBA student from Haripuram area of Rajamahendravaram, appeared for the written tests of SI posts that were conducted during November last year.

He had earlier tried his luck twice, but failed to clear the physical test.

When his condition turned critical, the doctors advised his family members to shift him to Vijayawada, but he was declared brought dead at a private hospital in the city on arrival.
