However, the convict failed to afford the heavy fine and was thus send to go back to the police station. However, things turned worse today in the morning when the convict suddenly collapsed and died.

The officer commanding station who was on a routine check of all prisoners at around 7am noticed that the man had collapsed and was unresponsive, forcing him to call in medical assistance. However, it came too late as the man had already passed on.
