Patiala, January 13

A 35-year-old garbage collector was found dead in a septic tank of a house in the Baradari area of the city late night on Tuesday. The garbage collector was reportedly asked to clean the manhole by owners of a house, said the police.

The body has been sent to the Government Rajindra Hospital for the postmortem. It has been learnt that the deceased, who was identified as Ayush, worked as garbage collector of several households in the Baradari area regularly.

On January 11, a house owner, reportedly, asked Ayush to clean a septic tank. Almost after 24 hours, Ayush was found dead in the same septic tank.

Yogesh Sharma, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said the house owner claimed that they thought the garbage collector had gone home after cleaning the septic tank. The police had started an investigation into the whole matter, the DSP added. “We have started investigation and action will be taken against any sort of negligence whether intentional or unintentional,” said the DSP.
