MADURAI: All-India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam Madurai West MLA S.V. Shanmugam died of a heart attack here on Monday.

Mr. Shanmugam, 60, was admitted to a private hospital after he complained of fever in the morning.

At around 9.30 p.m., he developed cardiac problems and was rushed to another private hospital.

He was declared "brought dead," hospital sources said.

The MLA was in the news recently after he created a flutter in party circles by praising Local Administration Minister M.K. Stalin at a function held in Madurai.

Amid criticism within the party, he did not participate in the AIADMK general council meeting and often declared he was "ready to face any action".

Police sources said the body was being shifted to his native village Othakadai near Natham in Dindigul district.
