Bhubaneswar: He had come to the capital city only 10 days back to work as a supervisor at the CNG storage unit in Raj Bhawan area here that exploded on Wednesday.  But destiny had other plans in store for him. On the day he would have returned home to Aska, he closed his eyes forever. Satya Nayak succumbed to burn injuries today leaving his family grieving.

Speaking to OTV, Nayak's brother, crying inconsolably,  informed that around 8-10 people engaged in the gas station belong to Aska assembly constituency in Ganjam district. "There was some pipeline work underway at the site and all of them had recently come after Simanchal Parida suggested them to join the work," he said.

Simanchal hails from Gahanga village of Aska. A diploma engineer by training, Simanchal was engaged in LPG maintenance work after he recently moved to Bhubaneswar from Kolkata where he earlier worked. Shockingly, Simanchal's family has now lodged a missing complaint as they failed to trace him in any of the hospitals.

Brother-in-law of the deceased said he received the information from the filling station authorities. "He (Satya) had come here some 10 days back. I received a telephone call yesterday and was asked if any of my relatives are working at the filling station. They informed me to reach Cuttack SCB Hospital as Satya was grievously injured in the explosion. One Simanchal Parida who had engaged all of them here is also missing."

Nayak who had sustained injuries in his eye and chest was in the ICU when his family rushed to the SCB college and hospital.

Another family member broke down when he said Satya was supposed to return home yesterday. "The family members were waiting for him. But the explosion has left everyone devastated. He had come here to work, and the government should help his family in whichever way possible. We cannot blame anyone but this incident should be thoroughly investigated."

Nayak's family members went on to say that they could not see even a single worker or either the employer of the filling station visiting the hospital to check his condition.
