made him to collapse.

He was
rushed to a private hospital in
the community where he was confirmed dead. Policemen

did not want to be identified,
said Gabriel was close to his
house when the incident

added to the fare they agreed
on.

That was what led to the disagreement." The state Police Public
Relations Officer, DSP
