The Hindu reported that a coal worker in Khairguda open cast coal mine in Kumram Bheem Asifabad district died of sunstroke on Tuesday, while two others were admitted to a hospital. In contrast, the neighbouring Asifabad and Wankidi mandals were pounded by heavy rainfall and gale for over one hour in the afternoon, bringing down the oppressive heat drastically.

According to information, a fitter, Shanigarapu Paul, of Mandamarri village, died of sunstroke while working and a supervisor, Murthy, and contract labourer Chandrashekhar were admitted to the hospital. Workers staged a protest at the mine demanding INR 50 lakh as ex gratia for the kin of the deceased worker.
