Thane police in Maharashtra on Thursday arrested two men for allegedly pumping air into a colleague's rectum by way of a prank that caused his death, an official said.

The accused were identified as Munna and Bittukumar, who, along with the victim Andul Mansuri (32) worked at a power loom unit in Bhiwandi in the district, the police official said.

On November 26, the accused allegedly inserted the nozzle of a compressor in the rectum of the victim and switched on the machine, he said.

As a result, high-pressure air entered his abdomen and he collapsed, the official said.

The victim died at a hospital on Wednesday, following which the police arrested the two accused.

They were produced before a local magistrate who remanded them in police custody for two days.

A case under IPC section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) has been registered at Nizampura police station.
