He reportedly collapsed and died of a cardiac arrest while at work.

According to an Exchange4Media report, colleagues ran towards the washroom when they heard a loud thud and discovered the editor lying on the floor. He was immediately taken to GB Pant hospital, where he was declared dead.

Colleagues and well-wishers of both Siddharth and Kumar took to social media to express their shock over the deaths.
