Bengaluru: A case has been registered after a 47-year-old man died after he fell into a pit on Hesaraghatta Main Road dug up for work by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB).

The deceased has been identified as S Anandappa (47), a resident of Mallasandra in T Dasarahalli. He was coming from 8th Mile, Peenya and was heading towards Bagalgunte.

The traffic police have registered an FIR against the BWSSB contractor concerned and others.
