Shivamogga: Senior BJP leader M. B. Bhanuprakash from Mathoor passed away on Monday due to a heart attack. He was 69 years old.

Bhanuprakash suffered a heart attack while returning after attending a protest meeting against the fuel price hike. Despite being rushed to hospital, he breathed his last without responding to treatment.
