HELPFUL: Mr Ranjith Kumar, who accompanied Mr Mohan Silamparasan to hospital.

One day he showed flu-like symptoms before his legs started swelling up.

A few days later, he was dead.

Relatives claimed X-rays had showed dark spots on Mr Mohan Silamparasan's lungs and he had told his bosses about it.

But the bosses at Haru Engineering denied knowing his condition and about the need for a more thorough check-up at the hospital.

A supervisor also said he had sent Mr Mohan to the hospital using his truck instead of an ambulance because he didn't want to waste time.

Distressed by his death, Mr Mohan's relatives in Singapore have made reports to the police and the Ministry of Manpower claiming negligence led to his death.
