Shocking: Plight of Kolkata eatery staff thrown into boiling curry will make you weep

Kolkata: A middle-aged worker of a roadside eatery in central Kolkata met with a brutal end after he was pushed into a huge cauldron of steaming curry by an angry customer.

The 42-year-old Lalan Singh died of his burn injuries at a city hospital on Thursday.

According to a Hindustan Times report, Singh had been working at the eatery located close to the Kolkata Police headquarters at Lalbazar.

The incident took place on Sunday. Singh hailed from Muzaffarpur in Bihar.

Accused Mohammad Zakir, a real estate broker, was arrested.

Zakir was reportedly angry over the quality of the fish curry being served to him. He flung Lalan into the hot pot following a heated argument.

The police have charged Jakir with culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
