Mahabubnagar: In a tragic incident, two brothers drowned when they accidentally fell into Koilsagar backwaters in Koilkonda mandal on Tuesday evening.
According to Koilkonda SI Suresh, Praveen (27) and his elder brother Sanjay (30), both residents of Kalyan Nagar Thanda, along with their parents, had gone to their uncle’s farm in nearby Vinjamoor village to work in the agricultural field of their uncle.
After completion of work, all the family members went to wash their feet under a bridge close to the field, where Koilsagar backwaters had settled. The two brothers slipped into the deep waters accidentally and to save them, their parents and uncle also jumped into the water, unaware of the water depth.
A farmer who was present there rescued three persons, but the two brothers couldn’t be saved. Parents of the deceased are migrant workers living in New Delhi and had come home recently.
