Months after making the news as the Indian real estate developer who turned his house into a shrine devoted to worshipping the US President Donald Trump, the 30-something-year-old Bussa Krishna has reportedly lost his life to a cardiac arrest only a few days after the US President announced that he had contracted the coronavirus.

Krishna had been featured in many news reports last February, as Donald Trump was paying a state visit to India, where it was revealed that he had begun to "worship" the US president after he saw him in a dream four years ago, just about the time Trump won the 2016 elections.
In several video reports, the Trump shrine was featured with many photos of the 45th president around the property, in addition to a large statue erected in the front yard of Krishna's house.

According to local reports, Krishna felt very upset upon hearing the news of Donald Trump's COVID-19 diagnoses earlier this month, which might have led the Telangana-native to suffer a fatal cardiac arrest last Sunday.

In a Reuters report published last February, Bussa Krishna had told journalists that he "believed in Trump the way he believed in Shiva," the third god in the Hindu religion.
Unverified online sources have reported that Krishna's death is a complication of fasting for Trump to have a speedy recovery. Yet, the medical team taking care of Trump's health had cleared the president for public gatherings last weekend, saying that he has overcome the virus.
