MDH Spices owner ‘Mahashay’ Dharampal Gulati on Sunday fell prey to a death hoax as news about his demise went viral on social media. Several media platforms carried the news of his death, which was strongly denied by the iconic spices brand.
Refuting the reports of Mr Gulati’s death, MDH’s executive vice-president Rajendra Kumar termed the rumour “shocking, baseless and false..”
“The rumour started on social media yesterday. I appeal to the people not to fall prey to such rumours,” he was quoted as saying by News 18.
