Blaming Goa festival death on drugs not right: CM

Paji, January 2: Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar on Friday criticised the opposition for pre–maturely claiming that a drug overdose led to the death of Bollywood designer Isha Mantry at a Goa music festival earlier this week. Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a press conference at the sxtate secretariat, Parsekar said: “That poor girl’s viscera report or post–mortem report has not even come. And people come to know what happened even before that? Shouting overdose, overdose, overdose is not right.” Mantry landed in Goa along with more than a dozen friends on December 26. She was partying at the Vh1 Supersonic EDM event held at Candolim beach, when she fainted Monday night and was declared dead on arrival at a local hospital. While police, quoting her friends, suggest that Mantry’s death could be linked to a combition of medication, alcohol and fatigue, the opposition has alleged that the 27–year–old costume designer, who had worked in the Priyanka Chopra–starrer “Mary Kom”, died due to a drug overdose.  (IANS)
