Mumbai:  A top official of a private equity firm was killed after a coconut tree fell on him in a municipal garden during a morning walk in suburban Andheri, civic body officials said on Friday.

The incident took place on Thursday when Ved Prakash Arya (41), Managing Director, Milestone Capital, went for a walk with his wife and was severely injured after the tree fell on him, said an official from the Disaster Control Room of BMC.

Ved was immediately rushed to the nearby Kokilaben hospital where he died a few minutes after his admission, the BMC official said.
