The deceased labourers were painters who had joined work just four days ago.

“The labourers were working in an under-construction building of an apartment being constructed by a private developer in Anugondanahalli near Hoskote,” said a senior police officer.

“They were given accommodation in the sheds built in one of the corners of the construction site. The sheds are adjacent to the compound wall of a warehouse of an e-commerce firm for the traders,” he added.
