Hyderabad: The body of a 25-year-old worker who died in a fire accident at his workplace in Abu Dhabi in October was brought to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport on Wednesday.
The Telangana government received information from the Indian High Commission in UAE that five youths from the state had died in a fire accident on October 19, 2016 at Dhuam in Abu Dhabi.
The government was informed that the dead were Pitla Naresh, 25, from Kamareddy, Malavath Prakash Naik, 29, G. Akhilesh, 22, and Bairi Gangaraju, 20, from Nirmal and Tota Rakesh, 32, from Nizamabad.

Naresh belongs to Machireddypally village in Kamareddy district. He has two younger sisters. He went to Abu Dhabi three years back to marry off his sisters.
The incident occurred after the workers had gone to sleep. The workers were late in reacting as they were sleeping.
The quarters had 32 rooms on two floors. The dead were from room numbers 17, 20 and 30. The fibre door of room #17 caught fire due to a short circuit. The fire spread fast as the beds had foam. Many workers escaped but Naresh in room 17, Gangaraju in room 20 and the other three in room 30 died on the spot....
