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.
