Lal Bahadur Shastri

He died an unexplainable death since he left the country healthy. Many have claimed that he died of heart attack, but the doctors and other specialists who have checked him out, including his wife, confirmed that he was A-okay.

This was never proven since there was no post-mortem diagnosis of the body so every assumption that could be answered were already included in the grave.
