"His death has come as a big shock to all of us. We all thought he would recover," said the secretary of Lalnghinglova Hmar of the Mizoram Football Association’s (MFA).

According to Hmar, a charity match in memory of Biaksangzuala is getting ready by the league and his team officially announced the retirement of his shirt #21.
