The man has been identified as Latori Barman, a resident of Khadra village. Police said Barman had gone to Rishi Panchmi fair with his wife on Friday night.
"It was dark and there were no warning signs. He would have been walking in an inebriated condition when he fell into the pit between Udlana and Hata village and lost consciousness. Traffic had been restricted on the stretch as the pit occupied more than half of the road," said an investigating officer.
The driver of the dumper and a labourer who had filled the pothole were arrested and booked for negligence leading to death.
