BENGALURU: In the last twenty years 60 manual scavengers have died, but none of the cases have been convicted, following this the Karnataka Police now want to investigate and also look in to under-reporting of deaths of sanitation workers. “We will study the investigations that have been carried out in these cases and will also look into the court proceedings”, Mr. Roop Kumar Dutta, Director General & Inspector General of Police said. “Apart from corruption, there is also a cultural bias in dealing with cases of deaths of manual scavengers, Professor Y J Rajendra, president of People’s Union of Civil Liberties, said. The cases are not booked under provisions of the Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act, 2013. In the case of C V Raman Nagar incident where three people died, police have filed the case under IPC Section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder).” “The families of sanitation workers who die don’t follow as there is no one to take up their cause, and there are many who bring pressure to prevent the arrest of officials”, said Karnataka State Safai Karamchari Commission chairman Venkatesh M R.    ]]>
