PADUBIDRI : A labourer met a tragic end when soil caved in inside the Nagarjuna
(UPCL) site at Padubidri during the task of laying a ten feet deep pit.
The deceased has been identified as Mantesh (24), son of one Chandappa of Davangere.
It is learnt, he was working under a private contractor of Padubidri at the site since the
past one month. The mishap occurred just when Mantesh was about to come up. A
machinery that was passing from above, led to the caving in of the soil.
Though he was immediately rescued and shifted to a private hospital, he had breathed his
last by then.
Padubidri police are conducting the investigations.
