NGO seeks judicial probe into Alang deaths
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.
