Justice evades ‘manual scavenging’ victims

A social organization has accused the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) of omitting sections of the Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation (PEMSR) Act, 2013, from FIRs related to the deaths of three sanitation workers last month. The organization, Jan Haq Sangharsh Samiti (JHSS), claimed that the workers were engaged in manual scavenging without proper safety gear, in violation of the law. Four contractors and supervisors have been arrested and charged, but without reference to the Manual Scavenging Act. JHSS argues that the Act would recognize the workers and their work and also bring into play the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, if the victims belong to the SC/ST community.
