MALAPPURAM: In a tragic incident, two labourers died after the upper portion of the well they were digging collapsed and a huge mound of mud fell on them. The victims have been identified as Velayudhan alias Maanu, 63, and Peruvath Achuthan, 58, both residents of Tanur. The incident occurred around 8.30 am on Friday, while they were digging a well for a newly-built house in the area.
