More about the incident

The incident took place in the morning as certain workers were loading metal scrap into the furnace. The event transpired when a mechanical malfunction occurred in the steel melting shop (furnance) of Kemo Steel Industries Private Limited (KSIPL) in Budhamora village, Anjar taluka. At 3:45 am on Sunday, hot molten steel began to overflow from a container within the shop.

The Budhamora facility of Kemo Steel Industries Private Limited (KSIPL) specializes in producing Thermo-Mechanically Treated (TMT) bars. The manufacturing process is comprehensive, starting with the melting of iron ore into steel in the steel melting shop, followed by casting the molten steel into billets, and eventually processing the billets into TMT bars. Despite attempts to reach out, the company has not provided any comments.

In a similar incident on December 28, two workers lost their lives, and three others sustained injuries when hot metal splashed on them from a bucket in the melting shop of Rudra Global Infra Products Limited (RGIPL) in Sihor, located in Bhavnagar district.
