Mangaluru: Chandrashekharan, the owner of a house near Pumpwell, intended to get a compound wall built around it.
A load of redstone had been ordered and it arrived by a tipper vehicle on Friday. As the driver of the tipper tried to reverse it for facilitate unloading, he did not notice the house-owner standing there.
It moved in reverse mode in full force. Chandrashekharan got crushed between the tipper and the compound wall. He died soon thereafter, while being taken to the hospital.
A case has been registered against driver Upendra by the rural police in Maroli.
