A 29-year-old engineer from Patna who came to the steel city to attend the wedding of his friend on Monday was found dead at a Sakchi hotel on Tuesday morning.

Kumar Mangalam was rushed to Tata Main Hospital where doctors on emergency duty declared him brought dead. Preliminary inquiries revealed excessive liquor consumption as the cause of death.

Mangalam was also engaged and was supposed to get married in March. One of his friends who stayed in the same hotel, Sonu Singh, said that they were four friends from Patna as part of the baraat (groom’s party) for their friend Rohit Sahdeo of Ranchi.

“We were four friends, Mangalam, Saurabh Singh, Naveen Kumar and myself had come from Patna to Ranchi accompanying our friend Rohit who got married to a Jamshedpur girl. We four stayed on at the hotel and drank a lot throughout the night and slept. In the morning, we all got up by around 8am, but Mangalam did not. We thought something was wrong and rushed him to Tata Main Hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead,” said Sonu.

Asked why the rest three were okay, Sonu said that they had consumed different types of liquor and Mangalam might have drunk more than them.

Tata Main Hospital authorities had informed the police immediately. Assistant sub-inspector of police of the TMH camp informed the matter to Sakchi police as the matter was related to that police station.

Sakchi OC Kunal Kumar said it appeared that Mangalam died due to excessive consumption of liquor at the hotel. “We have informed the deceased’s family members who are on their way to Jamshedpur from Patna. We have taken statement of the three youths who had stayed with the deceased in the same hotel,” OC Kumar said.

The police have kept the body at the TMH morgue for post-mortem at the MGM Medical College mortuary.
