This is 10th such dead case in this month from Delhi itself

A  sanitation worker died during cleaning the sewage on Sunday,
whereas 3 are in severe condition.

Rishi Pal a sewage worker entered the 15-feet deep tank first but fell
unconscious within seconds of entering the sewer. Co-workers of Rishi
called him but he did not answer back. After few minutes another
worker Bishan entered the sewer to look for Rishi but he too fell
unconscious. More two co-workers Kiran (30) and Sumit (22) also got
affected by the toxic gases.

However, all the workers were shifted to government hospital were
Rishi was declared dead whereas, other three are in severe condition.

This is 10th such dead case in this month from delhi itself. Such
leniency of the authorities is putting the lives of thousands of
sanitation workers at risk.

Delhi police has booked the contractor of the victims under Sections
304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and 308 (attempt to
commit culpable homicide) of the Indian Penal Code.

Supreme Court in 2014 announced 10 lakh compensation for sanitation
workers, whereas many families of the workers who died during working
or cleaning the sewage have not received any such compensation.

Sewer gas is a complex mixture of toxic and nontoxic gases produced
and collected in sewage systems by the decomposition of organic
household or industrial wastes, typical components of sewage. Sewer
gases may include hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, methane, carbon monoxide,
sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. These gases are poisonous to the
body’s cells and can also kill a person as soon as it is inhaled.

Earlier Hindu world has shown how BMC is being careless towards
protection of its workers.

The new integrations done in the law for sexual assault speaks volumes that the previous one did not suffice for the kinds of sexual assault that is done to women and children in our country. Under IPC section 376 amendment, the Punishment for rape pronounced stated that maximum punishment for this grave offence is capital punishment. The punishment varied from imprisonment of the accused for a term which shall not be less than seven years. IPC section 376 has already been discussed and now the latest addition and modified version of these sections are very welcoming. And now after Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana ,Arunachal Pradesh and recently added Uttarkhand approved the provision of capital punishment for those who found guilty, this new integration of sections 376 DA and 376 DB hopefully bring adequate laws and regulations in our country towards the protection of women.

India’s first original online Netflix original – Sacred Games released in over 197 countries starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan, was severely criticized by the Congress party for its comment on former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

Two complaints have been filed by two different Congress workers against the series. Also the party spokesperson had openly criticised it. This was the second time this year when a film was subjected to controversy for showing what the makers believed in. The first being Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ which was released after a long-standing controversy over the portrayal of characters. The film originally named “Padmavati” was forced to change its title by rajput karni sena. With the current gov being severely criticised for its stand against the artistic fraternity, Congress president Rahul Gandhi, this is your chance to prove that your party truly believes in freedom of expression.
