ECIL fire: woman succumbs to burns

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: Fifty-five-year-old B. Sri Devi, one of the 10 injured in the ECIL fire, succumbed to burns here on Saturday at Yashoda Hospital in Secunderabad. Sri Devi, a resident of Kamalanagar, was kept on ventilator from Friday evening.

The police registered a case of suspicious death under section 174 of Criminal Procedure Code. Her body was handed over to the family members after conducting an autopsy at the Gandhi Hospital mortuary. She is survived by three sons and a daughter. Her husband, Swamy, expired a few years ago.

She was among the seven employees admitted in this hospital. The condition of Ravi Kumar and Mohan Kumar, who also sustained 90 per cent burns, continued to be critical, doctors said. Three other employees being treated at Poulomi Hospital in Sainikpuri were shifted to Yashoda Hospital on Saturday, for treatment by specialists.

Vajra Sheela, 21, and Surendra, 20, who sustained 25 per cent burns and Kamalakar, 58, suffering from pulmonary-related problems, having inhaled gases emanating from the fire, were brought here in the morning. Sheela and Surendra underwent plastic surgery, while Kamalakar was kept under observation in the Acute Medical Care unit.

Kushaiguda Inspector K. Venkat Reddy said the sections of the law in the case would be altered after getting inquiry report from the ECIL management. Later in the day, the ECIL condoled the death of Sri Devi and said that the other injured employees were being given close medical care and attention. An official spokesman of the company said an accident investigation committee has been constituted with specialist assistance to look into the causes and facts of the fire.
