Lance Naik Vinod Banskar was posted in Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur and was on leave. He was scheduled to return in the first week of February, his brother said.

In the other incident, a man dressed as Hanuman died after suffering a heart attack in the middle of a performance in a Ramlila in Haryana's Bhiwani on Monday. The Ramlila was organised to mark the inauguration of Ram Temple in UP's Ayodhya.   

A video of the incident surfaced on social media, showing the deceased, Harish Mehta, dancing dressed as Lord Hanuman at the event.

Viewer discretion advised

Harish Mehta fell on the floor in the middle of the act, which people thought was part of the act and didn't immediately come to his rescue. Only after Mehta was unresponsive for over a minute, people realised it was a medical emergency.
