Workers went on a strike at the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) power plant in Kudgi of Vijayapura district after an accidental death of a 32-year-old worker on Wednesday.

Kishankumar Bharadwaj died when he fell from a height of 130 ft when he was trying to fix a cable on a chimney.

Workers said that they are being forced to work without proper safety equipment and that is leading to such accidents.

They said that the fateful worker was working for a private agency hired by NTPC. He was serving for the last three years at the same plant.

The protestors also demanded proper compensation to the family of the deceased worker. A case has been registered.
