Raipur, Jan 12 - The three Chinese engineers, arrested in Chhattisgarh for a chimney crash at the Balco power plant in which 41 workers were killed last year, were Tuesday shifted to a district hospital in Korba town after they complained of health problems, police said.
The engineers were employed with Shandong Electric Power Construction Corporation - that was building a 1,200 MW thermal power plant in Korba town, about 240 km from Raipur, for Vedanta Resources Plc-controlled Bharat Aluminium Company -.
'The engineers complained of some health problems Tuesday and were taken from the district jail to a district hospital, where doctors were conducting their necessary check-up,' Korba Superintendent of Police Ratanlal Dangi told IANS.
The engineers -- Shandong's project in-charge Woo Chunan, and two other civil engineers -- were Monday arrested under Sections 304 of the Indian Penal Code - and were presented to a local court in Korba. The court rejected their bail plea and sent them to the district jail.
The under-construction chimney that was designed to be 275 metres tall came crashing midway in September last year. It was being built by Gannon Dunkerley and Company Ltd - that had bagged the chimney construction order from SEPCO.
