 Doctor Says Spicy Food may Have Killed British Bride in India

A doctor has revealed that the British bride who died ten days after marrying a local man in India may have been killed by asthma triggered by eating spicy food.

Charlotte Bending, a 24-year-old mother of two, wed Jitender Singh in the northern Indian state of Haryana after they had met while working together in Plymouth, England, the Times of India reported.

She died on September 8 after she complained of a sore throat and collapsed, her doctor Bharat Bhushan was quoted as saying.

"Charlotte was an asthmatic and had visited my place three times before this incident. Three days before she fell ill, she had lots of spicy food which she couldn't digest," he told the newspaper.

Singh said his wife's body would be flown back to her home town of Liskeard in southwest England.

"She was full of life and, like any other Indian bride, wanted to spend some time at home after the marriage," he told the paper.

"Now the kids and I are all alone. We won't even be able to be there for her funeral."

Charlotte had one son, Gurkirat, aged one, with Jitender, and another son Nasrullah, two, from an earlier relationship, British newspapers reported.

"There wasn't a single sign of injury on her body," police superintendent K.V. Ramana said. "For the exact cause of death, though, we will have to wait for the final postmortem report."
