Jammu, December 23: 21 years old boy of Doda, Muhammad Usman Gattu who died on Sunday was seen posting status updates on social networking site Facebook like “waiting for death”, “user died” etc about a month ago. This may have been a prank to seek attention of his friends but unfortunately it turned out true for this youth.

Muhammad Usman died instantly on Sunday while his motor bike skidded off the Bhaderwah-Doda road near Dranga village. The boy was the resident of Doda and he was going back home from Bhaderwah which he visited a day before to attend a function.

The reports says that the roads had become slippery due to snow because of which his bike lost control and feel into a deep gorge and he died on the spot.

Usman was the only hope for family as his elder brother had died a few years ago of cardiac arrest in New Delhi. His death has come as a big jolt to the family.
