Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar Friday criticised the opposition for pre-maturely claiming that a drug overdose led to the death of Bollywood designer Isha Mantry at a Goa music festival earlier this week.
Even as forensic experts are conducting a post-mortem on the body of 27-year-old Isha Mantry, who died under mysterious circumstances at a music festival Monday night, Goa Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar Wednesday repeatedly insisted that the Bollywood designer was "drunk" way after the event wound up.
The viscera report of Sunanda Pushkar, Union Minister Shashi Tharoor`s wife who died under mysterious circumstances two months ago, hints towards drug poisoning but its findings are still inconclusive to file an FIR in the case, according to police.
The death of celebrated American character actor Philip Seymour Hoffman of an apparent drug overdose dampened the opening on Thursday of the 64th Berlin film festival where director Wes Anderson`s comedy "The Grand Budapest Hotel" had its premiere.
Hundreds of friends and fans of Philip Seymour Hoffman gathered for a candlelight vigil on Wednesday evening outside his New York theater company, paying homage to the acclaimed actor who died of a suspected drug overdose.
