    Tragic event unfolded at under-construction site in Electronic City

    Rod pierced through victim's head and emerged from one of his eyes

    Victim identified as Deepankar Chasa succumbed to injuries on the spot

In a gruesome incident, a 21-year-old construction worker from Agartala, Tripura, lost his life when a 20-foot iron rod, intended for scaffolding, fell from a height exceeding 100 feet in Bengaluru.

The rod pierced through the victim’s head, emerging from one of his eyes. The tragic event unfolded at an under-construction site within the Electronic City police limits, where the victim, identified as Deepankar Chasa, was working.

Chasa, a father of an eight-month-old boy residing near Ganesha Temple on Hosa Road in Electronic City, had been employed at the construction site in KG Veerasandra, Anekal taluk, for the past six months. Chasa’s uncle, Abhimanyu Kaira, also employed at the same location, filed a police complaint recounting the horrifying details.

According to Kaira, the victim was positioned on the iron scaffolding on the fourth floor of the B Tower in a residential complex when the 20-foot iron rod fell from the 13th floor. The fall from the 13th floor to the 4th floor measured over 100 feet, causing Chasa to lose balance and plummet to the ground with the iron rod lodged in his head. Unfortunately, due to the absence of safety measures, Chasa succumbed to his injuries on the spot.

Expressing grief, Kaira mentioned that Chasa had tied the knot two years ago, and the couple had an infant son. Kaira was the one who had encouraged Chasa to come to Bengaluru for work.

In response to the tragedy, a police complaint was filed against Mohammed Attaulla, the mason, and others involved. Authorities have taken action against the responsible parties, and an investigation is underway. A case of death by negligence under section 304A of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the suspects, according to an officer involved in the proceedings.
