BHOPAL: A 40-year-old Madhya Pradesh man died after his employer allegedly pumped air into his rectum by inserting a compressor, after a dispute over wages.
The deceased has been identified as Permanand Dhakad, resident of Gazigad Dhoria village in Shivpuri district.
He was a daily wage employee at a stone crusher. The Incident took place a month ago, said sources. Stone crusher owner and four of his employees are said to be involved in the crime.
Dhakad was thrashed up by the employer after he approached him for his wages on November 8. He pumped air inserting compressor into his rectum while three other employees overpowered him, it is alleged.
When Dhakad’s condition worsened, they took him to a private hospital in Gwalior without informing his family members. When doctors failed to revive his condition, they brought him back and got him admitted at district hospital.
They told his family that he was suffering some gastric problems. However, when Dhakad gained his conscious after 48 hours, he narrated the ordeal he went through. Thereafter, family members went to local police station and lodged a complaint.
Dhakad’s brother has named crusher owner Rajesh Rai as main accused. He told local media that Rajesh, his foreman Ravi, Pintu and Pappu Khan are involved.
SP Shivpuri Rajesh Singh Chandel told TOI that they are waiting for post-mortem report for further action. “I have asked a senior officer to looking into the matter and take necessary action,” Chandel said.
