A 45-year-old polisher died after complaining of chest pain at a diamond manufacturing firm at Nandu Doshi Wadi in Katargam area on Monday afternoon, even as a team of the Surat Income Tax department was carrying out surveys at the unit, Paladia Brothers, since morning.
Police said Dhiru Prajapati was having lunch with his colleagues when he complained of severe pain in chest. The firm manager called an ambulance and Prajapati was rushed to SMIMER hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
He was a resident of Singhanpore and had been working in the factory for 10 years.
Later, police visited the unit and recorded statements of the manager and other workers. Some of Prajapati's colleagues reportedly told police that he was under stress for the last few days.
"There is no link between the I-T raid and the death of Dhiru. We inquired it with his colleagues and found that he was under stress. He is survived by a son and two daughters," said a Katargam police officer.
