Joseph Marak, one of the labourers, who sustained serious injuries when he was allegedly hit by former model Rajkanya Baruah, breathed his last at Gauhati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) in Guwahati on November 10.
“It’s unfortunate that Joseph Marak was declared dead at 10 am today,” GMCH superintendent Abhijit Sarma informed the media.
He was admitted to the hospital on October 2 and following the surgery on his knee, Joseph was kept in the ICU for observation.
