Welder in Karnataka, dies of cancer
The welding supplies company has announced that the death of a co-founder has resulted in the loss of another member of the team.
Sources in the company told The Times of India that the news of the loss was announced by CEO Rahul Mehta and senior management, after the co-founders passed away last month.
Sources said that Mehtabhai and Ankit are not in the country anymore and the company has been unable to locate their bodies.
The company is yet to make any announcement about their future whereabouts.
Earlier this month, a video clip surfaced showing the pair welding with a coiled steel rod, which was apparently being heated by a water pump.
According to a tweet from the company, the cofounders’ deaths have been the result of natural causes.
The video was taken on January 18, the day before they were set to go on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka.
