Maharashtra: Mishap in sugar factory; two die

Pune: Tragedy struck a private sugar factory in Daund, approximately 80 km from Pune, as two workers lost their lives on Sunday at around 7 am, reported The Times of India.

The unfortunate incident occurred during the ongoing cooling process in the factory when the workers accidentally fell into a hot water tank, according to the Daund police.

The deceased have been identified as Sandip Gardade (23) from Daund and Ganesh Shinde (23) from Karmala in Solapur district. Sub-Inspector Satish Raut of Daund police said that the incident unfolded when Gardade, engaged in spraying water, lost his balance and fell into one of the tanks.
