Worker falls to death

 A 26-year-old construction worker was killed after he fell from the third floor of a government PU college in Kasturbanagar, Byatarayanapura police limits, on Thursday evening.

The deceased Santosh hailed from Chitradurga and was living near the college. He was hired by the college a month ago to erect sheets to protect a portion of the building from wind and sun.

On Thursday, when Santosh was busy fixing the sheets on the third floor, a sheet fell to the ground. Santosh went close to the edge of the roof to look for the sheet when another sheet came crashing down and fell on his head. He lost balance and fell to the ground.

He died on the spot, police said.
