An 83-year-old depositor of the crisis-hit Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative (PMC) Bank died on October 18, news agency PTI reported. The man was a heart patient and his family said they were unable to arrange funds to pay for a critical heart surgery.

This is the fourth such incident where a depositor has lost his life owing to the crisis that hit the lender. The deceased, Murlidhar Dharra, ironically had around Rs 80 lakh in deposits at the PMC Bank . However, his family was unable to access the money due to the curbs placed by the RBI on withdrawals from the bank.

Earlier, two people died due to cardiac arrest while a woman committed suicide due to troubles arising as a result of troubles with the lender.

The 83-year-old Dharra died at his home in suburban Mulund earlier in the day for want of an urgent heart surgery, his son Prem told PTI.
