whereas 3 are in severe condition.

Rishi Pal a sewage worker entered the 15-feet deep tank first but fell

affected by the toxic gases.

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.
