Panaji: Family members of the girl, who died allegedly due to drug overdose during her visit to a music festival here, have said that "she had no history of drug consumption and was suffering from bi-polar disorder".

Manu Bahuguna, father of 23-year-old Neha, who died at a city hospital yesterday, said the deceased was under medication.

"She did not take the medicine because she thought she is not unwell," Bahuguna, who flew from Delhi this morning, told reporters at the Goa Medical College Complex.

The girl, working at a hotel in Bangalore, was suffering from bi-polar disorder since the last three years, he said.

"We don?t suspect foul play and if anyone has to be taken to task for her death, it should be done by police," Bahuguna said adding the Neha had come to Goa to participate in the Sunburn beach music festival.

The three-day festival held at Candolim beach concluded on December 29, the day when Neha was shifted to Vintage hospital in Panaji.

Doctors at the hospital said the girl was brought in with breathing complications and died on December 30.

Hospital authorities confirmed that she was brought in from the festival venue at Candolim, 15 kms away from Panaji.
