A crane operator died in a freak accident at the Jindal Aluminum factory in the Dobbspet Industrial Area near Nelamangala on Wednesday night.
Veerendar Prasad, from Rajasthan, was operating the crane when a rope tied to the roof snapped from the bolt. He fell down and the machine collapsed on his head. He was rushed to a hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. Prasad had been working at the company for the past four years.
Fellow workers held a brief protest and said this was not the first such incident. They demanded action against the company.
A company executive said they learnt about the incident on Thursday morning but added it was too early to share any details.
An officer from the Dobbspet police station said a complaint had been filed against the management
