NCST To Probe Burn Injury Case

Jharsuguda: National Commission for Scheduled Tribes (NCST) today has issued notice to investigate the matter of the four contractual labourers who have sustained burn injuries while performing their duty in the JSW BPSL plant on 11 March 2022.

The ST panel has also sought a comprehensive report from the Chief Secretary and DGP, Odisha on the ‘Action Taken’ within 15 days.

On 11 March, four labourers namely Karan Oram, Nilamani Oram, Anjan Oram and Ashok Dhurua, all residents of Titeimal Village under Bhalaida Panchayat of Jharsuguda District had gone to work at the JSW BPSL.

On the same night, there was a blast in the plant, which inflicted burn injuries of varying degrees on the four workers. While one labourer had received 80 percent injury, another suffered 30 percent and two others had around 10 percent injury each.

After receiving primary treatment at the plant dispensary, two of them were sent to the Ispat General Hospital, Rourkela and two others to the Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (VIMSAR), Burla.

Recently Odisha BJP Secretary Tankadhar Tripathy alleged that JSW BPSL have not yet provided any compensation to the four contractual labourers who have sustained burn injuries while performing their duty in the plant on 11 March 2022 by addressing a Press Meet.
