Young city designer dies at Goa dance fest

CALANGUTE/MUMBAI: A 27-year-old Mumbai fashion designer died after collapsing due to exhaustion at the Supersonic electronic dance music (EDM) festival in Goa's Candolim on Monday night. Isha Mantry's death sparked allegations as Congress and NCP linked the EDM with drug abuse and called for banning it.

This is the second such EDM-related death in Goa. A young female techie from Bengaluru had died under similar circumstances in 2009.

Police said Mantry's friends ruled out a drug angle in their statements to cops. She had attended the event along with 13 people.

Mantry's friends told police she was indisposed when she arrived in Goa and was feeling unwell the day they attended the festival, where they had beer.

Her postmortem would be conducted after her parents arrive in Goa on Wednesday afternoon from Odisha.

Mantry's friends told police she fell unconscious just before the festival was to end. She was taken to a first aid centre from where she was shifted to a private hospital, where she died.

SP (North) Priyanka Kashyap said they have registered a case of unnatural death and are conducting further investigations.

Mantry had worked as a costume designer for movies like 'Mary Kom'. "We worked very closely during the making of 'Mary Kom'. She was a joyous person. So it is really sad news what has happened,'' said film-writer Saiwyn Quadras. "It is always a real tragedy when life is cut so short. She was good with everyone on the set, very dedicated, very hardworking. People only speak about her in high regard.'' electronic dance music,Mumbai fashion designer,Isha Mantry,Goa's Candolim,EDM-related death
