The Supreme Court (SC) was requested to inquire into deaths of 318 coal miners in Balochistan during the last eight years.
The petitioner highlighted at least 45 isolated accidents since 2010 that resulted in the death of 318 coal workers. He requested the court to assign liability for those incidents to relevant officials and government agents for failing to protect the workers.
The applicant stressed that Balochistan Minerals Rules 2002 be implemented, and cancellation of licences of lease-holders who failed to discharge their obligations.
