A man in India died after he fell into a hole and construction workers built a road over him, police said.

The body of the man was found when villagers spotted a shirt sticking out of the newly laid road surface, a spokesman told Reuters.

It is thought the 45-year-old had been to the village fair and was returning home when he fell into the hole in the district of Katni in Madhya Pradesh state in central India.

Road workers filled the hole with molten tar and used a heavy roller to flatten the new surface.

"His body has been sent for post mortem and further investigation is in process," police said.
