A 24-year-old Tamil Nadu government employee on Saturday died after she slipped and fell into an unclosed septic tank in an under-construction house where she had gone to relieve herself.
The victim, identified as Saranya, used to work at a government depot in Kancheepuram district’s Kalakattur. Shockingly, the office where she worked in did not have a washroom facility, hence, all of her women colleagues were forced to go to a nearby building at the time of nature’s call.
Speaking to media, Saranya’s father named Shanmugham said, “She was my life. I can’t digest her death. Saranya used to go out along with a few of her women colleagues to nearby houses or this under-construction building. We never thought it would turn fatal.”
