A 40-year-old employee died after his employer allegedly pumped air into his rectum by inserting a compressor after a dispute erupted between the two over wages, reports Times of India.
According to the reports, the deceased has been identified as Permanand Dhakad, resident of Gazigad Dhoria village in Shivpuri district of Madhya Pradesh. Dhakad used to work as a daily wage labourer at a stone crusher in Bhopal.
The deceased approached his empoyer identified as Rajesh Rai for wages on December 8. Rai allegedly thrashed Dhakad and later, three other employees – Pintu, Ravi and Pappu Khan joined him in attacking Dhakad. Shockingly, Rai pumped air into his rectum by inserting a compressor.
Dhakad’s condition worsened after the inhuman act by his employer. They immediately took him to a private hospital in Gwalior without informing his family members. As doctors could not revive his condition, they brought him back and got him admitted at district hospital.
