Ludhiana, October 6

Two factory workers died after allegedly inhaling some hazardous chemical at a factory on the Tajpur road, Opposite the Central Jail, here on Sunday.

The condition of another worker, who too had fallen unconscious, is critical. The deceased have been identified as Raju Kumar (30) and Rajwinder Pathak (47) and the injured Naginder Kumar (25), Raju’s brother.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Davinder Chaudhary said the unit of Balrama Textile Ltd was closed today, but the workers were there to put some chemical into the tank of effluent treatment plant (ETP). The moment they poured the chemical into the tank, all three fell unconscious and were rushed to CMC Hospital. Two of them were declared brought dead by the doctors there, while the condition of the third was stated to be serious.

The ACP said it seemed that the workers inadvertently poured excess amount of chemical into the tank due to which they inhaled the gas.

He said family members of the deceased were on the way to Ludhiana from Uttar Pradesh. “If any one of them submits a complaint of negligence on part of factory owners, we would initiate action,” he said.
