Kochi: The body of the person who went missing after falling into a waste pit at a plywood factory in Odakkali, Ernakulam was recovered on Friday morning. The deceased has been identified as Nazeer Hussain, 22, from Murshidabad in West Bengal.

The incident happened on Thursday around 7 am when Nazeer was attempting to control the smoke rising from a deep garbage pit using a hose. He was a staff at the plywood factory.

The staff of the plywood factory typically dispose garbage by burning it in the pit.

Though a team of fire and safety officials, police and locals searched for Nazeer till late night on Thursday, they failed to find him.

Nazeer had started to work at the plywood factory under the ownership of TP Mohammed only a week ago. The locals claimed that the factory has been running by violating the safety and pollution control rules.
