A scaffolding put up on a three-storey building on the Border Security Force’s (BSF) Yelahanka campus collapsed on Sunday, killing a young labourer and injuring his colleague, police said. 

Jana Jemini, 19, and Shashikumar, 30, were standing on the scaffolding, waterproofing the building when the structure suddenly gave way around 7 pm. Jemini was the first to fall to the ground. Shashikumar followed him and fell right on top of him. Jemini met with an instant death while Shashikumar sustained grievous injuries. The latter is being treated at a private hospital and is out of danger. 

The building is used by the BSF’s intelligence wing. 

Jemini was from Tamil Nadu and Shashikumar from Srirampuram in the city. The two were hired by a private contractor based in Hyderabad. 

The Yelahanka police have booked the company’s two directors for not taking precautionary measures and not providing safety gear to the workers, a senior officer said. They have invoked IPC sections 304 (A) (accidental death caused by negligence), 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others). 

The directors have been summoned to Bengaluru for questioning, the officer added.
