17 July 2014
|The Toxics Watch Alliance, a non-governmental organization, has written to Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel seeking a judicial probe into last month’s death of five workers at the Alang ship breaking yard in Bhavnagar district.|
“In view of the recent deaths and injuries, and ongoing deaths and accidents since 1984, I seek your immediate intervention to ensure a judicial inquiry into the matter. It has been officially admitted by the office of the Director, Industrial Safety and Health [DISH], Government of Gujarat, that fatal accidents have been going on since 1984 without any legal remedy.
