On Wednesday, a 33-year-old contractor was killed when a compound wall at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) collapsed on him. A tree on campus fell on the wall, causing it to collapse.
This is the fourth death in Bengaluru in the last week as a result of rain-related occurrences.
The deceased was identified by cops as B Vasanth, a resident of Anekal who worked as a subcontractor. According to the police, Vasanth and two others were working on a stormwater drain near IISc. The wall fell at 3 a.m., and Vasanth was trapped beneath it. Despite being rushed to M S Ramaiah Medical College Hospital, doctors declared Vasanth dead on arrival.
