Rourkela: Harsh supervision of work led to murder of an engineer by a laboruer.

G Ganesh Kumar, an engineer working with Ferro Scrap Nigam Ltd.(SNL) was clubbed to death by a contract labourer, here on Sunday.

According to reports, Ganesh Kumar asked the contractual worker Anil Loahara (30) of Kansara village in Sundergarh district to report for work on Sunday morning.

AReporting for work on a holiday had made Anil upset.

Anil was vexed as he was asked to work on a holiday. He, however, lost his cool when Ganesh Kumar constantly monitored his work all though the day.

This led to a heated argument and subsequently an exchange of fist-cuffs.

Then out of rage, Anil hit Ganesh Kumar on his head with a iron rod laying there.

The engineer supervisor with serious head injuries was shifted to the Ispat General Hospital where he was declared dead.

The Tangrapali police have arrested the contractual worker and registered a murder case.

Ganesh Kumar, who hails from Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh, had recently joined Ferro Scrap Nigam Ltd. in the maintenance division as an executive engineer. The Nigam, engaged by the Rourkela Steel Plant, operates on the premises of the Plant.
