BENGALURU: Two labourers were electrocuted, while another sustained serious injuries when power was restored even as they were working on an electric pole at Doddamudavadi village in Harohalli in Kanakapura taluk of Ramanagar district on Monday evening. The deceased have been identified as Mahesh, 21, and Mylari, 22, while the injured Mallikarjun, 22, is undergoing treatment at a hospital. All the three hailed from Maadli village at Shiggaon in Haveri district.

They were daily wage workers with a contractor who had undertaken works in Doddamudavadi village for Niranthara Jyothi project. They were living in a temporary shed in the same village and were working in the village for the last one month.
