Spectator dies of heart attack during Pak-India T20 match

Bangalore: A 47-year-old cricket fan died following a heart attack while watching the first India-Pakistan T20 match on Tuesday at the Chinnaswamy stadium, a senior police official said.

“Kamal Jain, who was watching the match from the stands, felt uneasy during the 18th over when Pakistan was batting. Though he was rushed to the nearby Mallya hospital by ambulance, he died after admission,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Ravi Kante Gowda told media.

Mr Jain, who originally hailed from Odisha, was working in a private firm in Bangalore.

As he complained of breathing trouble, his family members, who were also present in the stands, carried him out of the stadium and rushed him to the hospital, less than 1km from the venue.

“No case is being registered as it was a natural death. It was a coincidence that he was in the stadium then when he felt uneasy as he was not able to breathe properly. It’s sad,” Mr Gowda added.

India lost to Pakistan by five wickets in a thriller.

India’s Most Wanted List Includes Pakistan Army Officials [Reuters]

Indians targeting Pakistan

The “most-wanted list” was handed to Pakistan in March, its contents have only just been released. The timing of the release coincides with increasing pressure on Pakistan over claims it harboured Osama bin Laden.

Indian Home Secretary G.K. Pillai presented the list to his Pakistani counterpart, Qamar Zaman Choudhary, during a meeting in March, a senior government official with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

New Delhi has long accused Pakistan of harbouring militants such as the those behind the Mumbai attacks in 2008 that killed 166 people, who it says were supported by the country’s military intelligence agency, the ISI.

In addition to five serving majors in the Pakistan army, the list includes accused underworld leader Dawood Ibrahim, and suspected members of militant groups al Qaeda, Lakshar-e-Toiba and Jasih-e-Mohammed.

US special forces killed bin Laden at his home in a military town 50 km (30 miles) from Islamabad this month, leading to accusations that security agencies were either incompetent or sheltering the word’s most wanted man.

Nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan have gone to war three times since 1947.

The two sides have been making tentative moves to revive a sluggish 2004 peace process that was broken off by New Delhi following the Mumbai attacks.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will visit Afghanistan “in the near future” to discuss security and development, a senior government official said on Wednesday, amid regional uncertainty following bin Laden’s death.

Any quickening of the endgame in Afghanistan is a concern for India, which fears a US withdrawal would leave it exposed to an unfriendly, Pakistan-dominated neighbourhood and unfettered militancy in its backyard.
