    Pictures look like those of a quarry filled with water; no proper road to access could have led the heavily loaded tipper to tip over! Poor laborers die; how much of compensation will their next of kin get from the owner?? Pathetic state of affairs..no value for human life...

    Oh it is a tipper. Not surprised at all. The other word for tipper is dootha and other word for tipper driver is yama and both together are a lethal mix called yamadootha.
