Three labourers die due to suffocation in septic tank, contractor held

Three Malwani-based labourers, who had entered a septic tank to clear a clogged sewer in the Ram Mandir locality, near the Malwani-Jari Mari road, suffocated to death inside the tank yesterday. “While working at the base of the tank, the trio fell unconscious, two of them died on the spot while the third was declared dead on arrival at the hospital. The trio were hired by contractor Ram Kumar (28) on daily wage basis, but he committed a grievous mistake when he asked them to enter the septic tank without adequate safety measures,” said a police official.

According to Malwani police sources, the deceased trio have been identified as, Maya Kashi (24), Murti Harijan (33) and Kaashi Vishwanath (45). What is even more appalling is that all the three had not done this type of work earlier, with this being the first time that they had entered into a tank. The deceased trio were residents of Malwani gate number 6 and knew each other well.

“Labor contractor Ram Kumar have been arrested and booked under section 302 (A), he was produced before the court and sent into Judicial custody,” the police official added.
