MYSURU: Heavy rain disrupted normal life in the Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, and Mandya districts of the Old Mysuru region on Monday. A 42-year-old daily wage laborer died in a village in Chamarajanagar district in a house collapse incident.
According to the Chamarajanagar tahsildar Basavaraju IE, the deceased has been identified as Murthy, 42, a resident of Dadadahalli village. “Murthy was staying with his mother and sister. On Monday early morning, around 1.30 am, he died after coming under the wall and roof,” he explained.
“The villagers were claiming that their lightning also struck at the same time. But they could not corroborate it,” he said.
Meanwhile, thousands of acres of farmland are submerged in the flood water in Chamarajanagar and Yelandur taluks of the district. The Suvarnavathi river caused havoc. In Chamarajanagar
city, flood water caused damage as water entered Indira Canteen and other places.
