Patiala, June 19

Two men died at Daudhda village in Samana block of the district on Saturday morning after they reportedly fell into a biogas plant.

Darshan Singh (55) and Gurdhyan Singh (28) were pulled out of the plant with the help of fellow villagers.

It was learnt that Darshan, along with Gurdhyan, had gone to see the biogas plant in his animal yard after they found that the plant stopped functioning.

To fix the plant, Gurdhyan climbed down the pit and didn’t return. Consequently, Darshan went down but he was also trapped therein.

Both died as they inhaled a poisonous gas.

The incident took place at around 7.15 am.

Ankurdeep Singh, Station House Officer, Sadar Samana, said they had handed over the bodies to the families after the post-mortem at Samana Civil Hospital.

The SHO said, "The moment we received the information, our team rushed to the site and helped to take out the bodies."
