Hyderabad: A 40-year-old man who fell in a flooded open-drain during the heavy rains in Manikonda is feared to have been washed.The man was caught on camera falling into the pit near the Golden Temple in Manikonda.

Rescue teams comprising three Disaster Response Force (DRF) teams of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and the Telangana police launched a search operation late in the night but could not trace the man till Sunday afternoon.

MP and TRS leader Dr. Ranjit Reddy also visited the site to inspect the rescue operations. "Unfortunate to learn that a person named Rajnikant was swept away by a stream and fell into a Nala in PuppalaGuda, Manikonda Municipality, Rajendranagar constituency. Inspected the accident site. Search operations are underway. Hope and wish he comes out safely," tweeted Dr. Reddy.

The locals have said that there are many open nalas in the area and alleged that contractors have not completed work due to payment issues.

A team is also searching for the man at Neknampur lake which is three km away from the place where he fell.

Heavy rains inundated low-lying areas in the city and water entered residential colonies in some places. Stagnating water on roads disrupted traffic along PVNR Expressway in Rajendranagar, Attapur, Toli Chowki, Manikonda, Lakdi Ka Pul, and the Old City.
