Four men, who crept into a coal mine to allegedly steal scrap iron from the place, died of asphyxiation inside in Shahdol district of Madhya Pradesh, reports said.

According to reports, the now-deceased men broke into a closed coal mine in Kalri under Dhanpuri police station to rob scrap iron by stripping junked machines, while one of their partners stood outside to stand guard.

However, the man standing guard became anxious when his gang members didn’t return for a long time and there was silence from inside. The man fled the spot and fearing the worst, returned back and informed his friends and family of the incident.

Reports said police got wind of the incident, and sent a rescue team inside the mine who managed to pull out the bodies of the four thieves.

Police said that four men were already when the rescue team found them inside the mine.

The deceased have been identified as Raj Mahto, Hazari Koul, Rahul Koul and Kapil Vishwakarma, police said, adding that they suspect the men died due leakage of methane gas inside the coal mine.

The mine had been shut since 2018 and the four men had reportedly dug a tunnel to get inside the coal mine.

Telugu actor Taraka Ratna faints during TDP leader Nara Lokesh's padayatra in Andhra Pradesh's Chittoor

Telugu actor Nandamuri Taraka Ratna fell unconscious on Friday during the padayatra of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) general secretary Nara Lokesh in Kuppam in the Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh.

He was immediately rushed to the hospital in Kuppam after he fainted during the Padayatra. He was later shifted to the multispeciality hospital in Bengaluru for better treatment.

Reportedly, Taraka Ratna had no pulse, and his body turned blue when he was brought to the hospital. As per the latest reports, his pulse has returned after 45 minutes of treatment. Doctors state that the actor is currently receiving medical treatment.

The incident happened when there was a stampede-like situation outside a mosque that Lokesh visited shortly after launching his 4,000-kilometer padayatra. The actor-turned-politician Ratna was also a part of the padayatra.

According to the reports, ex-CM Nara Chandra Babu Naidu’s son Nara Lokesh launched a padayatra in Kuppam on Friday, and he was accompanied by several political leaders. Ratna also accompanied Lokesh in the padayatra.

Lokesh performed a special puja at Lakshmipuram Sri Varadaraja Swamy Temple before launching padayatra and then went to the mosque where he was joined by Ratna after a brief walk. It seems that Taraka Ratna fainted while leaving the mosque, probably from suffocation from overcrowding.

Taraka Ratna is the grandson of TDP founder, legendary actor and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. T. Rama Rao. He is the cousin of Junior NTR, Kalyan Ram and Lokesh.

Meanwhile, the padayatra will conclude at Ichapuram in the Srikakulam district after over 400 days. Andhra Pradesh is looking forward to the assembly election in the state which will be held in June 2024.

Taraka Ratna, who made his film debut in 2002 and has acted in about a dozen movies and web series, is reportedly keen to contest next year’s Assembly elections. On the professional front, he was last seen in the S5-No Exit film.
