<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The toll in Wednesday’s blast in a boiler at the state-owned power firm NTPC’s plant climbed to 30, while many others were battling for life in various hospitals.About 100 workers are undergoing treatment after being scalded at the Unchahar plant in Uttar Pradesh’s Rae Bareli.Union Minister of State (independent charge) for Power, RK Singh, denied allegations from politicians and families of the deceased that human negligence was to blame for the tragedy. He announced Rs 20 lakh for the families of those killed, Rs 10 lakh for critically injured and Rs 5 lakh for those with minor injuries, suffered in one of India’s worst industrial accidents in years. Twenty people had been reported dead on Wednesday.Accompanied by UP Energy Minister Srikant Sharma, Singh announced a high-level probe panel, headed by NTPC Director Technical.The committee will submit its report within 30 days. The state government has also started a magisterial probe. A two-member technical team will submit findings within seven days, also on precautionary measures for future.NTPC Chairman Gurdeep Singh and other officials were at the plant to brief the Union Minister. NTPC has initiated its own inquiry. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also approved ex-gratia of Rs 2 lakh each for the next of kin of those who died in the blast, and Rs 50,000 each for the injured.Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took a break from his Gujarat campaign and reached the 1,550-megawatt coal-fired plant in Rae Bareli, his month Sonia Gandhi’s parliamentary constituency. He sought a judicial inquiry into the tragedy and said the victims should be better compensated. He also met Singh. Rahul went to the Rae Bareli district hospital to meet the injured and said he was sad to see their pain.Officials said blockages in the flue gas pipe in the 500-MW boiler in Unit 6 led to the blast that let out hot flue gases and steam, scalding workers. Ash had collected in the furnace beneath the boiler, which increased pressure, they said.The plant supplies electricity to nine states. NTPC said other facilities would make up for the shortfall and outages were unlikely. The other five units of the station are functioning.A 32-member team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is already at the site for relief and rescue operations.Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on a three-day tour to Mauritius, has asked officials to ensure effective relief and rescue operations, besides best medical facilities to the injured.The state government has announced Rs 2 lakh for the families of the dead, Rs 50,000 for those seriously burnt and Rs 25,000 for the injured.Meanwhile, the Opposition Samajwadi Party demanded a probe by a retired High Court judge into the blast. “The news of the accident is deeply saddening.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>At least 18 people were killed and more than 100 wounded when a boiler exploded and caused a massive fire at a state-run NTPC power plant at Unchahar in Uttar Pradesh’s Rae Bareli on Wednesday evening, triggering widespread panic and chaos.The toll is likely to go up in the industrial disaster because most injured have serious injuries and some are still feared trapped inside the coal-fired plant. More than 150 ambulances were pressed into relief and rescue work that was affected by a huge ball of dust that rose after the 500-MW boiler (power generating unit) exploded.The injured have been admitted to various hospitals in Lucknow, Balrampur and Allahabad. All burn units in adjoining districts have been put on high alert. About 20 workers with serious burns were shifted to Lucknow.Among the injured are four assistant general manager-rank officials. Three of them, first shifted to a private hospital in Lucknow, were being flown to Delhi.One injured died in Lucknow’s civil hospital where eight had been admitted. Medical Superintendent Ashutosh Dube said all of them had 80 to 90 percent burns and are in critical condition.Eyewitnesses said that the explosion was so powerful that the employees had little chance to save themselves. “I heard a deafening sound and saw fire.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi asked party workers in Rae Bareli — her parliamentary constituency — to extend all possible help.UP Energy Minister Shrikant Sharma admitted that it was a major industrial accident and said, “Our top priority is to rescue those still trapped and provide best medical care to injured workers. We will certainly fix responsibility and initiate action against anyone found guilty,” he said.A 32-member team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has reached the plant to supervise relief and rescue operations. A high-level team of NTPC — India’s biggest power utility — rushed to the site to ascertain the cause of the blast and help the local administration in relief and rescue.Initial reports suggest that the blast occurred due to high pressure in a steam pipe of the boiler, said Rae Bareli sub-divisional magistrate Alok Kumar. Fire engulfed the entire Unit 6 where about 200 workers were on duty. CRPF and police jawans have been deployed at the plant which has been sealed to check any unauthorised entry.Unit 6 was commissioned recently. It was still running on trial. NTPC has ordered an inquiry. “We do not rule out any human error,” said an NTPC official.Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on a three-day tour to Mauritius, asked officials to ensure effective relief and rescue operations, besides best medical facilities to the injured.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A narrow Foot-Over-Bridge (FOB) proved to be a deathtrap for commuters at Elphinstone Road station in central Mumbai on Friday morning, when a stampede triggered by rumours of a short circuit and of the FOB collapsing left 22 persons dead, including an 11-year-old boy, and 39 injured.At around 10 am, commuters alighted at Elphinstone Road and Parel stations. Due to a sudden burst of rain, people stood on the FOB rather than step out onto the platform, even as other trains arrived in quick succession, bringing in more crowds. Eyewitnesses said that there were close to a thousand commuters on a 5-metre wide and 32-metre long FOB connecting the two stations. The 2.1 metre wide staircase was also packed beyond capacity.”It seems that some miscreants spread rumours of a short circuit and of the FOB collapsing, which caused panic,” said a Western Railway (WR) official. At around 10.15 am, the panic led to a stampede as people pushed each other to get off the FOB. Those who attempted to climb up the stairs were pushed back by those coming down them.Commuters lost their footing on the stairs, and those behind fell on them. In the end, there was a pile of bodies heaped on top of each other on the stairs leading down to the platform.Some people even jumped onto the rail tracks, and were pierced by the sharp fence fixed as a barrier. “We immediately started removing the blue-white coloured sheets that covered the railing of the staircase so that we could help people stuck in the stampede. We also placed a ladder and started pulling people out,” said Mitesh Dave, a local resident.There was chaos at Parel too, as the crowd on the FOB was pushed back till people spilled onto the platforms.The tragedy took place on a day when Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal was in the city, and expected to make his first public announcement on introducing new suburban rail services on Western and Central lines from October.The tragic loss of lives sparked outrage at the apathy of the Railways in carrying out much needed infrastructure upgrade.After visiting the injured at KEM Hospital, Goyal announced a ‘highest-level’ inquiry by the Chief Safety Officer, and said the Railways would undertake safety and capacity audit of all the FOBs in Mumbai. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who returned the city from Singapore at 10 pm, also announced a detailed inquiry by the state government.After visiting KEM Hospital to meet the injured, Fadnavis said that the state government would ensure that such incidents do not take place again. He added that the Union Railway minister has decided to undertake safety and capacity audit at all FOBs, and the state government, as well as BMC, would provide all required help in this regard.”We have created multidisciplinary audit teams that will inspect all suburban stations within one week and identify areas of concern,” said Goyal. “Work on FOBs in progress will be completed on a war-footing and additional FOBs will be planned at other stations where passenger traffic is high.”Expressing grief at the lives lost, Goyal said that he himself had travelled on local trains from Sion to Dadar and Dadar to Churchgate for eight years during his student days. He said he was committed to provide the best possible facilities to commuters in Mumbai.While 14 male and eight female commuters died in the stampede, another 30 male commuters and nine female commuters sustained injuries. Among the injured, two are in a critical condition. Goyal announced that next-of-kin of the deceased would be given Rs 10 lakh each as ex gratia, with the state government and Railways providing Rs 5 lakh each. He also announced Rs 1 lakh for those seriously injured and Rs 50,000 for all injured. Mumbai guardian minister Subhash Desai announced that all the injured would be provided free treatment by the BMC.During peak hours, nearly 3,800-4,000 people travel in a 12-car local train. According to railway officials, 16-20 people stand per square meter inside a coach.Opposition parties demanded the resignation of the Railway Minister, with NCP leader Ajit Pawar even demanding that a culpable homicide case be registered against the minister and railway officials.The Dadar police have, meanwhile, begun a preliminary inquiry into the tragedy, after registering an Accidental Death Report. “We have handed over the bodies after the inquest and will be conducting an inquiry in the matter to ascertain responsibility and negligence. We will register a case if we find negligence of anyone,” said Sunil Deshmukh, Assistant Commissioner of police (Dadar division)The police will also be probing who spread rumours of a short circuit and of the bridge collapsing, leading to the stampede.NUMBERS MATTER1.07 lakh

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>As many as 17 bodies of those killed are lying in the morgue of Civil Hospital, Panchkula, since Friday. All these persons were killed in clashes between police and supporters of Dera Sacha Sauda, which erupted immediately after the special CBI court found the Dera chief guilty of rape. However, there are still no takers for these bodies, of which 10 have been identified.Doctors and police officers say fear of legal action is the main reason why the relatives of these dead aren’t approaching the police for claiming the bodies.Even the dozens of injured lying in the hospital are wary of sharing their addresses or contact numbers of their family members.Same is the story in Chandigarh hospital, with the police saying many of these victims are giving false information for fear of action.This has also led to overcrowding of wards as most of the injured have not been discharged, even though many of them are out of danger.Talking to DNA, senior police officers said those who come to claim the dead bodies or attend to their injured family members will have to undergo a thorough verification and, if found involved, could be booked under relevant sections of IPC. Police officers also say they are looking at the option of booking those who are discharged for violating Section 144.AS Chawla, IGP, Law and Order, Panchkula, said there are certain formalities while handing over a dead body or while discharging a person. “Since we will have their records, their pictures will be taken which will be matched with the video evidence that the police have recorded. If found involved in violence or rioting, they will be traced and booked,” he said. Chawla agreed that this could be a reason why family members are refraining from claiming the dead bodies or coming to take care of the injured.Police also said that many of the injured have given false information to doctors and police. A senior officer said, “When records of injured with the doctors were verified, information provided by the victims turned out to be false. They have been misguiding the police,” the officer said.At Civil Hospital, Panchkula, 68-year-old Ishro Devi, who has fractured her right leg, is weeping continuously, requesting the police and doctors to help her contact her son in her village, about 150 kms away from Panchkula. The woman claims some youth of her village put her in a vehicle along with others from her neighbourhood and brought them to Panchkula on the pretext that the Dera chief had asked them for support.She acknowledges she is a follower of the Dera.70-year-old Kakka Singh who was brought to the hospital with injury in back and a broken leg, also refuses to share details of his family or his address. Singh, who came from Bhatinda, Punjab, has a chit in the pocket of his shirt on which a family member’s contact number is written, but the number of not reachable.THE FEAR FACTORAS Chawla, IGP, Law and Order, Panchkula, said there are certain formalities while handing over a dead body or while discharging a person.
Since we will have their records, their photos will be taken which will be matched with video evidence.

While chasing the miscreants, terrorists hurled a grenade on police and CRPF party in which one CRPF soldier and cop were injured. Injured persons have been shifted to Police hospital in Srinagar for treatment,” said a police spokesman.Terrorists later fired at the residence of former minister in South Kashmir’s Shopian district possibly to snatch the rifles. However, the alert guards immediately retaliated forcing the terrorists to take a hasty retreat.Security forces averted a major tragedy when they busted a top Hizbul module and arrested two terrorists and two Over Ground Workers (OGWs) in north and south Kashmir.Police said acting on specific information about the movement of terrorists, a joint Naka of police and 21-Rashtriya Riffles was laid at Chogal, Handwara in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.Police said two persons — Mehrajudin and Obaid Shafi Malla — were moving in suspicious circumstances and when they were asked to stop they started running. “The Naka party immediately swung into action and caught hold of them. A huge cache of arms and ammunition was also recovered from them,” he said.During investigation, the duo revealed that they had come to Handwara to receive the consignment of ammunition and other war like stores for terrorists in South Kashmir.”Cyber surveillance unit of J&K police also tracked their social media network accounts and found some incriminating material. They were misusing Web-chats to hatch and execute terrorist conspiracies,” the spokesman said.Preliminary investigation revealed that these terrorists were members of Hizbul module who not only recruit youth by radicalising them over social media but also coordinated their training and arranged arms/ammunition.”Based on their disclosure, two more members of the module working as OGWs were arrested from Awantipora. They were identified as Shahid Ahmad Thoker and Irfan Ahmad,” the spokesman said.CRPF CAMP ATTACKEDTerrorists on Monday night carried out a grenade attack on a CRPF camp in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district, injuring two paramilitary personnel, police said.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Narrow lanes have long been the bane of Delhi’s Fire Department. Time and again, crowded lanes have hindered Delhi’s Fire Department from reaching the spot, saving arms and helping to put the fire.But now, in a novel solution to the problem, the fire department has made plans to procure ‘robotic fire fighting towers’. A new technology—“robotic arms” can throw water for up to 72 meters away and from a height of 32 meters, as big boon for firefighters who currently have a big difficulty getting the fire truck and hose pipes to the fire spot.While the idea is great in theory senior Delhi Fire Service (DFS) officials say that things are still in the planning stage at the moment.”We are making a proposal for the technology which will be very useful in areas that are difficult to reach. With 32 meters of height one can easily target any spot in a particular radius and directly aim at the fire. This would give time to the firemen who, in the meantime, will reach the spot and make the necessary arrangements,” said a senior DFS officer.The idea for the new technology came out at a recent meeting held at L-G Anil Baijal’s office. Senior officers from the DFS and AAP minister Satyender Jain and the L-G himself participated in discussing challenges faced by the force which is severely short staffed.”The technology is being looked into and we are getting details about it. It is being used in Germany and China. We will have to import it from one of these countries. The expected cost per machine should be somewhere around Rs 3 to 4 crore,” said the officer.The robotic arm tenders will also have cameras and sensors installed to help the operator know the range of water, the amount of force required and volume of water available in the tank, he added.Such technology will help in dealing with crises such as the one that the Capital witnessed recently. Over two weeks ago, 100 families lost their source of income, as a short circuit caused a fire in Old Delhi’s Chandni Chowk area. Several wholesale shops were gutted and once again, narrow lanes were the problem.Officials from the Fire Department had then said the situation could have been controlled if they could reach the shops on fire, within time. But the narrow, congested and serpentine lanes proved to be too much of hindrance.Deaths and injuries in fire incidents2012 to 2013Deaths – 285 Injured – 1,9792013 to 2014Deaths – 372 Injured — 2,2992014 to 2015Deaths – 291 Injured — 2,0682015 to 2016Deaths – 339 Injured – 2,0992016 to 2017Deaths – 277 Injured — 1,987Incidents that claimed firemen’s livesFeb 2017 – Two firemen died following a cylinder blast during a fire in Vikaspuri areaSep 2016 – Two firefighters died after they were trapped during a rescue operation inside a factory that had caught fire in NarelaSep 2004 – Eight firemen charred to death while conducting operations after a massive fire broke out at a timber market in Kirti Nagar

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Two men who had beaten up a tempo driver 23 years ago have been acquitted by the Delhi High Court of the charge of attempting to kill the victim but convicted for causing grievous injuries. While modifying their conviction, Justice P S Teji let them off on the period they have already spent behind the bars during over two decade long trial in the case as they both are senior citizens now. The court acquitted them of the offence of attempting to kill the tempo driver as the prosecution had failed to establish that they had any intention to beat him to death. The high court granted leniency to the duo as nothing adverse was found against them since the suspension of their sentence in 2001 when they had filed their appeal against the trial court order convicting them for attempted culpable homicide and sentencing them to three years imprisonment. The high court convicted Aas Mohammad and Balmat for the offence of causing grievous injury saying “no doubt, they had the intention to cause grievous hurt to the injured, what to say by giving lathi blows on the head of the injured”. “This court finds that the incident in question is of the year 1994 and considering the fact that the appellants have faced the agony of trial for the last 23 years, and the fact that after suspension of their sentence on August 30, 2001 and December 5, 2001 nothing adverse is found against them coupled with the fact that the two are at the verge of their age. “This court is of the considered opinion that in the interest of justice sentence awarded to appellants for the offence under Section 325 of IPC be reduced to the extent of period already undergone by them,” the bench said. As per the prosecution the accused persons, including two more who were declared proclaimed offenders during the trial, had beaten up the tempo driver on April 29, 1994 after a heated argument between them over a petty issue. The high court, however, was not convinced with the police theory and noted that it “does not find” any reason to uphold the trial court’s judgement as the “prosecution was unable to establish the fact that there was any intention of appellants to kill the injured”. “Accordingly, in the considered opinion of this court, the judgment cannot be upheld and the appellants are entitled to the benefit of doubt on the account of contradictions in the statements of the material witnesses and non-recovery of the weapon of offence…,” it said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
