The ongoing agitation of the Dredging Corporation of India’s employees against the proposed sale of equity has intensified after an employee of DCI reportedly ended his life in Vizianagaram district yesterday in protest against the move, The Hindu Business Line informs.

The body of N. Venkatesh (29) was found near the railway track near Nellimarla in Vizianagaram district late on Monday evening, and he reportedly left a suicide note stating that he had taken the extreme step in protest against the move of the Union Government.

Venkatesh, a native of Vizianagaram, had joined the DCI in 2012, according to the Business Line.

As reported earlier, DCI employees served an ultimatum to the government that unless the move was shelved, they would go ahead with the indefinite strike plan and intensify the agitation.

The union has already served a strike notice on the management.
