Umbrekar had allegedly hired Kurade for 2000 to clean the well without providing any safety gear or a mask. According to Sharda Arondekar, a social worker, Kurade died shortly after entering the well, which is more than 10 feet deep.

Arondekar stated they got a call from Jogeshwari Trauma Hospital, where Umbrekar had taken Kurade after the incident. “The police sent Kurade’s body for post-mortem but haven’t filed an accidental death case yet. Arondekar urged the police to add manual scavenging charges against Umbrekar.”

An accidental death report (ADR) is being registered and an investigation is being conducted to ascertain the cause of death.
