He suffered a slight stroke in 1963, and a more-debilitating attack followed in January 1964. He died a few months later from a third and fatal stroke.”
Bbc in a article titled as, 1964: Light goes out in India as Nehru dies, BBC reported “It is believed he suffered a heart attack, and although specialists fought to save him for much of the day, he passed away early this afternoon with his daughter, Indira Gandhi, by his side. ”
Nytimes reported, “India Mourning Nehru, 74, Dead of a Heart Attack; World Leaders Honor Him”, The nytimes reported “Mr. Nehru woke at 6 A.M. (8:30 P.M. Eastern daylight time, Tuesday) and complained of pain in his shoulders. Before his physicians were called in, he had a heart attack and fell unconscious. He died in a coma eight hours later. [News of Mr. Nehru's death was published in an extra edition of The New York Times of Wednesday.]”
Theguardian reported “At 6.25 a.m. today Mr Nehru, who had gone to sleep last night "fresh and fit" after his short holiday at a hill station, had a stroke. He lost consciousness almost immediately, but not before he had complained to his valet of a pain in the back. He died without regaining consciousness, and according to a member of his household, his death was due to "an internal haemorrhage, a paralytic stroke, and a heart attack."”
So all the news reports points to a common conclusion that Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Prime Minister of India, died in 1964 due to heart Attack.
