Patna, June 25 (ANI): Engineers in Bihar have threatened to go on an indefinite Statewide strike from first week of July to protest against the alleged murder of one of their colleagues recently.

Members of Bihar Engineering Services Coordination Committee (BESCC) have demanded compensation of 2.5 million rupees for the family of the deceased, besides a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

"We demand CBI probe into the death of Late Yogendra Pandey and a compensation for his family members," said Rajivnath Prasad Singh, a member of BESCC, who also threatened to go on indefinite strike from July 2 if their demands were not met.

"After a meeting BESCC has decided that if our demands were not fulfilled by July 1, it would go on the indefinite strike from July 2. The ongoing pen down strike would continue till July 1," Rajivnath added.

Yogendra Pandey, an engineer by profession, died after falling from the III rd floor of the Sitamarhi Collectorate on June 18 under mysterious conditions.

Even though police claim that a suicide note was found on Pandey's body, his family and colleagues claim that he was pushed from the third floor of the building.

Bihar Engineering Services Coordination Committee (BESCC) during a late night meeting on Wednesday (June 24) decided about this indefinite strike.

However, they are continuing with their pen down strike which will last till July 1. (ANI)
