BENGALURU: One person arrested in the DJ Halli violence case died due to cardiac arrest on Saturday. He was later found Covid-19 positive. Syed Nadeem (24), a resident of KG Halli, was arrested on August 12 morning and later produced before the jurisdictional Judicial Magistrate and was sent to judicial custody. He was lodged in Parappana Agrahara jail.

When he complained about chest pain, stomach pain and breathlessness, he was taken to Bowring Hospital. He was operated for a blunt injury (not bullet injury) and was under medical observation. 
He tested Covid positive and did not respond to post-operative treatment due to subsequent complications and lost his life, according to police.
