    RIP. After he fell down, soon afterwards, he got up on his own and rode his motorcycle to the nearest hospital in Bantwal city. From there, he was transferred to Fr. Muller's hospital in Mangalore, where he had been in the ICU, not until 7 pm, when he breathed his last.

    Are there any laws to protect these workers? This is the second incident this week. Mangalore is getting lot taller buildings and propel are not having any safety equipment to access these buildings. There is no value for life in India. The organ harvesting lobby will write a rosy article about how the deceased saved many lives by not getting a chance at life. Kurigalu Saar Kurigalu
