Varanasi sewer death: Anti-atrocities, manual scavenging abolition laws "not mentioned" in FIR

A memorandum by the National Inquilabi Dalit Adivasi Forum's Dr Anup Shramik to the district magistrate and superintendent of police regarding the recent death of two labourers due to gas leakage in the sewer of Chawkghat in Varanasi on November 10, 2018 says that, even more than a month after the incident, no concrete action was taken by the administration to nab those responsible for this.
"A very weak FIR was filed by the administration against the guilty. It does not even refer to the anti-atrocities Act or manual scavenging abolition Act. There is no mention of the third person who was injured. As a result, till now,the injured person has not received any compensation or any help for treatment. He is being intimidated, instead, by the culprits", Dr Shramik says.
