Three Holi revellers met with a tragic end in separate incidents on Thursday. While autodrivers, Suresh, 23, and Javed, 27 -- both from Borabanda -- died after their bike hit a divider near Begumbazar police station, a labourer, Kalipha, 24, drowned in a pond in Dundigal. The two drivers went to Shahalibanda in old city, celebrated Holi with friends and were returning home when their bike rammed a median on Begumbazar main road.

Kalipha, along with his friend, Raghu, went to a pond near Katta Maisamma temple in Dundial for bathing after playing with colours.

But Kalipha slipped into the deep waters and drowned.
