Former Union Minister and BJP parliamentarian Bandaru Dattatreya's only son Bandaru Vaishnav, 21, died of a massive heart attack on Wednesday, family sources said.
Vaishnav, a third year medical student, collapsed while having dinner with his family at their Ramnagar residence in Hyderabad on Tuesday.
The youth was rushed to a private hospital in Musheerabad. He was declared dead around 12.30 a.m.
Dattatreya, a member of the Lok Sabha from Secunderabad constituency, was inconsolable over the loss.
Condolences poured in from leaders across the political spectrum. Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu telephoned Dattatreya to convey his heartfelt condolences.
