Kottayam: A 54-year-old polling officer in
Kerala`s Kottayam district died following a heart attack, police said Wednesday.

Cyriac Abraham (54), senior accountant at State Bank of
India, was given exemption from attending poll duty by the
electoral officer as he felt uneasiness yesterday after
collecting polling material for the Pala constituency, police
said.
The official was rushed to a private hospital, after his
condition worsened, where he died last night.
