The ongoing PMC Bank crisis has become a nightmare for the depositors. On Friday, an 83-year-old Muralidhar Dhara died at his home in suburban Mulund.

Following the request to the bank, he was allowed to get Rs 40,000, which was insufficient for Rs 2.25 lakh surgery. So Dhara's family was finding out ways to raise the funds when this tragedy struck. This was the fourth incident of death due to PMC crisis. Earlier, two people died of cardiac arrest and a doctor committed suicide.

Since September 23, RBI has imposed restrictions on PMC Bank. After setting the initial withdrawal limit at Rs 1,000, the amount has been raised at Rs 40,000. Hapless PMC depositors have been demonstrating across the country for their money.
