The man, was on his way home from office on February 8, when he fell into the open manhole on a busy road in the heart of the city, right opposite the Telangana Secretariat.
Fortunately, he did not hurt his head, as he was wearing a helmet when he fell and got away with minor injuries. The incident happened at the site where workers of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board, had dug a pit on the road to carry out repair works.
