Panel hears horror tales of women’s death in textile factories

Chennai: Horrid tales of deaths of women in textile mills kept members of Tamil Nadu State Women’s Commission on the edge of their seats at a public hearing in the city on Tuesday.
“They found my daughter’s dead body inside the mill. When we questioned, we were told that she committed suicide due to love failure. The local police did not even file an FIR to probe,” said Puniyanathan, father of 18-year-old Vanaja, who was found hanging inside a sewing mill in Rasipalayam, where she worked a year ago.
