The incident occurred after sub-inspector P. Vishnuprasad had taken to the stage to sing a traditional song the day before his daughter’s wedding in the village of Neendakara in the Indian state of Kerala.
In the video, the 55-year-old can be seen singing with a live band on stage when he suddenly collapses.
He falls sideways into one of the instruments and onlookers rush to get to their feet.
Reports state the police officer was taken to a nearby hospital but he was declared dead on arrival, with reports stating he is suspected to have suffered a cardiac arrest.
Local media report his family member decided not to tell his daughter Archa about her father’s death. They reportedly told the bride-to-be he had been taken to hospital but was recovering, and are said to have claimed he would attend the wedding.
The couple were married on a Sunday and it was only on the Monday that the family told Archa her father had died because it was the day of his funeral.
Reports state Vishnuprasad only had more year of service remaining before his retirement. He leaves behind a wife and three children.
