    The contractor has to pay, of course. But don't wait for the long process. The local communkty must come forward and help the unfortunate family to bear the burden make the family that they are not alone in this moment of great sorrow. Mere criticism of the system will not benefit anybody.

    Security for the workers is very important ,Contractor has to see that the person is secured.He has to pay for him.Even workers must see that their life is not in danger.Heartfelt sympathy to the family .May his soul rest in peace.
