Robot Kills Man in Haryana’s Manesar Factory
A man in Haryana lost life in the hands of a robot. A worker named Ramji Lal, since one and a half year, was on a contractual loading work at Maruti Suzuki industrial plant in Manesar town. When the accident occurred, there were 63 workers and 39 robots under operation. Oil tankers are manufactured in Manesar plant by workers along with robots. Alignment of metal sheets and welding them is the job of robots there. Since a metal sheet was not put in place by a robot, Ramji approached to try putting it properly. With this, the pre-programmed robot welding sticks pierced through Ramji’s abdomen. Though he was immediately shifted to hospital, it was of no use. Police investigation says that the accident occurred as Ramji went too close to the robot. Workers Union on the other hand demanded ex gratia for Ramji Lal’s family.
