    Most silly matter has escalated in loss of a precious life... Once again public behavior comes into limelight... First of all it is midnight and staff will be extra tired obviously... Customer should have been polite in his request... Also staff could have been restricted by the owners against manhandling... Person must be with a weak heart condition... Very sad thing to happen in a fit of fury... RIP to the departed soul...
