Hemanth Mahe, a native of Assam, was a security guard at the school and had been staying on the premises.

He came in contact with a live wire when he went out to fetch water in the night while it was raining. He died on way to hospital.

The Mahadevapura police have registered a case and are investigating. In another incident, a medical store employee was killed when he touched a transformer on Someshwara Nagar Main Road in Siddapura on Thursday.
