A 23-year-old youth from Tamil Nadu’s Namakkal district reportedly died of dehydration and fatigue in a temporary shelter on Wednesday night at Marredpally police boundaries in Hyderabad.
It is suspected that the youth travelled some 454kms from Wardha in Maharashtra to Hyderabad with 24 others from Tamil Nadu, at least some part by foot.
Namakkal Collector K Megraj said the deceased had been identified as B Logesh, a Pallipalayam diploma holder and resident, 55 km from Namakkal.
Since 14 February he has served at a private company in Nagpur. Stranded in the town after the nationwide lockdown, Megraj said on March 30 that he left Nagpur on a bus.
Locals in Secunderabad, on Wednesday night, however, saw Logesh and his companions walking towards Bowenpally and brought it to authorities ‘attention.
