A gantry crane operator has been charged with negligence over a fatal accident at a container yard in the Indian town of Uran, near Mumbai.

According to a Mid-day.com report, 46-year-old Shishir Prabhat Khalkho was charged over the death of a 26-year-old surveyor at the Epic Global Service container yard.

Eyewitness Laxman Andhale told police: “On July 3, around 8.30 pm, the empty container was being lifted from my truck by a crane in the yard. Both the locks of the crane were not in good condition. 

“A surveyor, Sandeep Dinesh Chaurasia, was inspecting the container as it had to be kept in the yard. The crane operator was aware that the surveyor was directly below the container and that the lock on the right side of the crane was defective. 

“Still, he lifted the container and due to his carelessness the lock broke and Chaurasia was crushed to death immediately.”
