  • Family members of two brothers who died after inhaling toxic gases inside a sewer in east Delhi

However, no arrests have been made as yet.

Another worker and fireman, who were trying to rescue the trapped workers, are admitted to a hospital after they too inhaled the toxic gas.

In the last two months alone, a total of seven sewer deaths were reported in Delhi in separate incidents.

The deceased were identified as brothers Jahangir, 24, and Izaz, 22, who had gone to the Aggarwal Fun City Mall in Anand Vihar to clean a sewage tank with their father, Yusuf, 50.

In both the cases, the victims were working for private contractors.

The brothers were residents of Sahibabad, Uttar Pradesh, which borders Delhi.

After two men died in exactly the same circumstances in Vishwas Nagar on Saturday, Gautam tweeted: "It is very sad to know that today also one labour expired and two injured during cleaning of safety tank of a private mall. Head Constable Mahipal from the fire department then went in to rescue the trio, but he also inhaled the gas, hit his head against the wall of the tank and sustained injuries".

Police said Jahangir was declared brought dead and Izaz died later during treatment. "Yusuf and Mahipal are under observation". Only a week ago, three workers had died in a similar situation while manually cleaning a sewer line in south Delhi's Lajpat Nagar.

A section in the Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act prohibits "hazardous cleaning" of a sewer or a septic tank without "protective gear and other devices and ensuring observance of safety precautions".
