Ahmedabad, Nov 13 (PTI) A 69-year-old man, who was standing in a queue to exchange demonetised currency notes in Limbdi town of Surendranagar district in Gujarat, died due to a heart attack, police said

Mansukh Darji, the senior citizen, was standing in a queue outside a Bank of India branch in Limbdi when he suddenly collapsed due to a heart attack, they added

"Though he was rushed to the civil hospital by others in the queue, he died shortly thereafter during treatment. We learnt that he suffered a heart attack. His family members informed the doctors that he was a heart patient," said the Police Station Officer (PSO) of Limbdi, Navghanbhai

A 47-year-old farmer had died on Saturday after suffering a heart attack while standing in a queue for over two hours outside a bank at Tarapur town in the district to exchange demonetised currency notes

Meanwhile, a large number of distressed citizens on Sunday continued to throng the banks and ATMs across Gujarat to get the new currency notes since the wee hours

As the queues were getting bigger day by day, many complained of having to wait for hours. Several citizens also complained of returning empty-handed, despite standing in the queue for hours.
