The witnesses said that the sound frequency noises which were extreme disturbed the groom. He repeatedly asked them to lower the volume or at least keep the DJ away, but no one heeded his pleas “Suddenly we saw the groom collapse on the stage. He was immediately rushed to a local hospital, but the doctors declared him brought dead,” local villager Rannandan Roy told local media. His last rites were performed in his hometown on Thursday.
‘Loud noise affects hearing, increases anxiety’
The current trend is to violate the guidelines issued by the regulatory body. This incident highlights that excessive sound can cause serious health problems. The Bihar State Pollution Control Board has recommended a sound limit of 55 decibels during the day and 45 decibels at night for residential areas. People are violating these even though there are severe penalties for doing so. It can lead to ear drum problems, heart related problems, insomnia, lung related diseases, but people are not aware of it,” BS PCB Chairman Ashok Kumar Ghosh said on Friday.
According to the details, loudspeakers and DJs are banned from playing after 10 pm. Orders were issued to play music within the prescribed limits. “But it should be known that we are only an advisory body. Even if we inform the district administration, we are not authorized to enforce the order,” Ghosh added. The use of DJs and loudspeakers during other social events will continue unhindered. No one takes it seriously,” said ENT specialist Dr Prabhat Shankar.
