Prajwal Magadum died after suffering for a day with high fever.
He was busy in organising a procession to install a Ganesha idol in Ashok Nagar on Tuesday.
He was admitted to a private hospital after he complained of fever. But the hospital asked the family to shift him to the District Civil Hospital after they suspected a dengue infection.
