Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): A devotee from Gorakhpur fell down fainting at the entrance of Shri Mahakaleshwar temple. The 65-year-old devotee was taken to Mahakal dispensary for treatment and then was referred to the Civil Hospital but died on the way.
Deceased Jagdish Prasad son of Hariprasad, a native of Jatampura village in Gorakhpur, had come to visit Shri Mahakaleshwar temple. On August 13, he left Gorakhpur for Ujjain by bus for darshan.
