Madikeri: A significant tragedy unfolded when a building section collapsed in the Stewart Hill layout, resulting in the unfortunate loss of three laborers. The victims, identified as Basappa, Ningappa, and Anand, were residents of Chikkodi taluk in the Belagavi district

 This incident occurred during excavation work for a private retaining wall construction, leading to the collapse of a wall that trapped four laborers beneath the debris. Miraculously, one of them, Raju, managed to escape with the assistance of his fellow workers. Regrettably, the remaining three individuals remained trapped under the mud, ultimately leading to their untimely demise. This tragic event transpired while a total of nine laborers were involved in the construction work.

Throughout the operation, the presence of notable figures such as Madikeri MLA Dr. Mantar Gowda, District Superintendent of Police K.
