Two men crushed to death
Two workers were crushed to death in a trash separator machine in the solid waste management unit in Vijayapura on Wednesday.
Rafiq Babusab, a pourakarmika, and Ayub Sheikh, a driver on contract, died when they were caught in the two arms of the skid roller machine that they were trying to repair, officers said.
The two workers had not brought to the notice of the higher authorities the malfunctioning of the machine. The incident will be investigated, municipal officers said.
APMC Police, who rushed to the spot, have launched an investigation.
