Bodies of 9 Migrant workers recovered from a well in Telangana among 9 deceased one have been identified as Citizen of Tripura.

Bodies of nine migrant workers have been recovered from a well in Telangana’s Warangal district. The district police found four bodies in the well, located in the premises of a gunny bag manufacturing godown, on Thursday and another five on Friday.

This came even as chief minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao on Thursday asked state officials to arrange for trains or buses to help migrants return home.

Local media reports said the manufacturing unit’s owner had found the workers and their families missing and later found the bodies in the well. The police suspect the workers could have taken the extreme step due to financial stress or family issues.

Rao on Thursday appealed to migrants not to walk back to their native places after scores of workers have been returning to their home on foot from Telangana’s capital Hyderabad over the past few weeks.
