Two persons lost their lives inside a sewer line near a mall in Faridabad's Sector 31 area on Saturday.

The incident occurred around 3pm on Saturday when two persons identified as Rakesh and Kishenpal got inside the sewer line near two residential colonies, possibly to clear the sewer line after it got choked due to rains.

When they did not come out after some time, their close associate Raju waiting outside and other labourers got nervous as there was no response from Rakesh and Kishenpal. Soon Raju went inside with others tying him with a rope.

According to police, the PCR van rushed to the spot and pulled Raju out who was unconscious. He was rushed to a private hospital in Sector 30. Rakesh and Kishenpal were also pulled out from the sewer line and were taken to a government hospital in Faridabad where they were declared brought dead.
