22 year old dies due to safety negligence

Repeating the same death pattern, Taalib Hussain passed away, at the Palampur’s Om Power Project due to poor safety measures. Earlier 6 manual workers have died during this project but it seems the company has turned a blind eye towards all the lives lost. The 22 year old boy, who died after falling from a height of 200 feet, had come to work from Doda (Srinagar) after sitting for his 10+2 examination. The State government has paid no heed and absolutely no rules have been passed when it comes to safety measures. But after such incidents, the government should wake up and strictly act when if the company’s don’t work towards the well being of their workers.
