Even as the Government claims to be providing job work to the poor and vulnerable people at their doorstep, reports of poor people migrating from their homes in search of work to outside States and getting exploited there are found aplenty.
But, a recent report of a family of four getting ruined with wife being gangraped by a kiln owner and an agent, two sons being killed by them, and unable to bear the traumatic husband committing suicide has turned to be a rare of rarest cases in the history of all tortures.
According to sources, Bivek Chinda (45) of Huma village under the Kantamal police station of Boudh district had migrated with his wife and two sons to Andhra Pradesh to work in a brick kiln through a local Dalal on December 3.
According to reports, as he had some dispute with a brick kiln owner, the latter and the agent, in a mood of revenge, gangraped Chinda’s wife and killed his two children in front of Bivek.
Unable to bear the shock, depressed Chinda tried to commit suicide in Hyderabad by touching an electric transformer.
However, he was rescued by the local police and admitted to a hospital there. As his condition slightly improved, he was sent to Balangir somehow by the Nagabali Express. As Chinda had not completely recovered, when he arrived at Balangir railway station he was to be admitted in hospital. But he succumbed to his burn injury which had become septic in the hospital on December 14 last.
“He was admitted to the District Headquarters Hospital with injuries on different parts of the body with severe infection. He died due to septicemia,” says Balangir CDMO Dr RN Tripathy.
Meanwhile, the Balangir town police have registered a case and sent the body for post-mortem. When asked, the Boudh SP said, “I shall look into the matter.”
On Tuesday, Labour and Employment Minister Prafulla Mallick expressed profound grief over the tragic death of Chinda and said the State Government would make all out efforts to rescue Bivek’s wife from Andhra Pradesh.
“Our priority now is to rescue the missing wife of the deceased, who was gangraped by the brick kiln owner and his associates. We are trying to get the address of the locality where the deceased labourer was staying with his family members,” the Minister told reporters in Bhubaneswar.
He further informed that the Development Commissioner is having discussions in this regard with his Andhra Pradesh counterpart.
