Bhubaneswar, May 26:

Heat wave

The Odisha government on Monday confirmed four sunstroke-related deaths this year.

As per government figures, two persons in Rayagada and one each in Bargarh and Baleswar have died of sun stroke. With the heat wave set to last at least a week more, the toll is likely to mount in the day to come.

The toll, however, could rise even if no further deaths take place due to sun stroke. After all, just 11 out of the 43 complaints of deaths due to heat wave have been examined so far.
