A man was washed away in an overflowing, open nullah (drainage canal), between Quthbullahpur and Dwarakanagar colonies, in Hyderabad. The man fell in to the nullah and tried to swim out but failed. Locals, who saw him struggling, gave him the end of a cable, which he caught and tried to come up. However, the swift currents in the nullah pulled him away and the cable broke. He was washed away in the flowing waters. Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) teams have launched a search operation.
