Worker falls to death

A labourer working at an under-construction mosque in Srirampuram accidentally fell to his death on Saturday afternoon.

The deceased has been identified as Velu, 30, a resident of Vidyaranyapura. Velu and another worker were plastering the insides of the dome of the mosque standing on centring poles. However, the centring caved in and Velu was trapped under the debris. He sustained severe head injuries and died on the spot, police said. His injured co-worker, who has not been identified, is  said to be out of danger.
