Kundapur, Dec 05, 2016: A young labourer was buried alive in an underground drainage trench when earth suddenly caved in even as the works were underway near the Vyasaraya Mutt here on December 4, Sunday afternoon.
The deceased is Rupesh Paswan (21). He hailed from Bihar. It has been gathered that the youth had breathed his last before help arrived and he was removed from beneath the mounds of soil.
As many as 12 workers of Bihar origin were engaged in the underground drainage laying works in the town since some time.
