LUDHIANA: A horrific incident unfolded in Ludhiana as a young man tragically fell from the 15th floor of an under-construction flat, resulting in his untimely demise. The unfortunate incident occurred at a building site on the Mullapur-Firozpur Road, where a residential complex was being developed by the Amber Company. The victim, identified as 20-year-old Suheb, met a fatal head injury that claimed his life instantaneously.
Notably, Suheb had been diligently working on installing railings within the building when the fateful accident occurred. According to eyewitness accounts, his footing slipped, leading to a fall. The impact of the fall was so severe that steel rods pierced through his body, resulting in his immediate demise.
Swift action was taken by fellow workers at the site, who used cutting machines to extricate the young man's body from the debris and steel rods. Suheb, hailing from Darbar Khurd Kairana in Shamli, Uttar Pradesh, had been residing in company flats along with other workers.

It is worth mentioning here that following the tragic incident, the fellow workers staged a protest, demanding compensation for Suheb's family. The workers decried the lack of safety protocols provided by the company, further revealing that no safety nets or equipment were in place to prevent such accidents.
