One worker died and two are feared dead while cleaning a 30-feet deep drain in West Delhi’s Keshopur canal water treatment plant, police said on Friday.

The labourers were washed away and one of them drowned when the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), which had stopped the water flow for cleaning, suddenly started the supply, officials said.

The deceased has been identified as Shahrukh (25), a resident of Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh while the missing are Ankit (19), a resident of Hardoi UP and Devinder Sharma(25) a resident of Etha in UP. According to Monika Bhardwaj, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), West District, a Police Control Room (PCR) call was received at about 1.00 pm on Friday regarding a drowning of workers in Keshopur canal.

“Acting on the call, the local police and fire brigade reached at the spot. The fire brigade was able to remove one worker Shahrukh. He was rushed to Deen Dayal Upadhyay (DDU) Hospital where he was declared brought dead,” said the DCP.
