The family of Gopal Chandra Dey alleged that financial hardship caused by non-payment of salary and other dues from the company drove him to death
Members of two rival trade unions today fought when the body of an employee of Calcutta Tramways Corporation, who allegedly committed suicide, was brought to the company's office.
The family of Gopal Chandra Dey alleged that financial hardship caused by non-payment of salaries and other dues from the company drove him to set himself on fire last Tuesday.
Dey, a resident of Narayanpur in North 24-Parganas district, was admitted to the state-run R G Kar Medical College Hospital in a critical condition with severe burns. He succumbed to his injuries last night.
Members of CPM-affiliated trade union CITU and INTTUC of ruling Trinamool Congress broke into a scuffle when Dey's body was brought at CTC's Belgachhia depot in north Kolkata.
CITU leaders blamed the state government for the death of Dey, while INTTUC leaders accused the CITU of playing a dirty game against the government on the issue.
Police brought the situation under control.
