Polymers chemical plant at Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh in May, the Court recounted how “the gas speedily spread in the places surrounding the chemical plant” and how the “footage of people on the streets, collapsing on account of being unable to bear the gas and its pungent smell, is known to all”. The Gujarat High Court denied anticipatory bail to the accused employees, including the Production Incharge, Unit Head, Head of Plant and Liquid Storage, Head of Fire and Safety, holding them prima facie guilty of the offence of criminal negligence leading to culpable homicide. Stating that the Company is engaged in the business of chemical processing and the applicants, who are “serving on different technical posts requiring specialized knowledge and expertise to deal with such dangerous chemicals”, were required to take “immediate corrective measures for neutralizing the effect of the chemical reaction”, Justice Gita Gopi exclaimed that instead of taking any corrective measures, the applicants slept over the wrongful act for about 24 hours. The accident having transpired on account of a wrongful transfer of two different chemicals contained in tankers to the wrong storage chambers , the Court noted that the applicants are well versed with the chemical character of the liquids involved and are well aware of the consequences in the event of a chemical reaction arising out of a mixing of the two chemicals, and if they had taken necessary corrective measures immediately when the wrongful transfer of chemicals came to their knowledge, the tragedy could have been averted and life could have been saved. Naming it the “most glaring aspect of the case”, the bench noted that on 02.06.2020, at around 1200 hrs., two tankers had arrived at the factory premises of the Company. One tanker was containing NA and another was containing DMS. Around 18 tonnes of NA and 25 tonnes of DMS were under the process of unloading and by mistake, the in-let pipes of the tanks were inter- changed and were connected to the wrong storage chambers. Thereafter, the chemicals got transferred to the wrong storage chambers through the hose-pipes. “This factum came to the notice of the applicants, original accused, at around 1430 hrs. on 02.06.2020. At that very moment, instead of taking necessary corrective measures for neutralizing the chemical reaction, it appears that the applicants did nothing and simply slept over the entire event, as if the applicants were waiting for the tragedy to happen”, the bench expressed its shock. The bench recorded that on 03.06.2020 at around 1200 hrs. on account of a chemical reaction in the storage chamber ‘B’ containing Nitric Acid, a blast occurred. As a result of the blast, six workers died on the spot and four workers passed away during the course of treatment. In all, 10 persons died and around 77 workers were injured. The High Court order explains that DMS is an oily liquid used extensively as an alkylating agent and is highly toxic for man, with particularly acute effects on the respiratory tract whereas, NA is a colorless, fuming and highly corrosive liquid. It is also toxic and can cause severe burns. “Thus, it is a well known fact that the two chemicals – DMS and NA, which the applicants were dealing with, are highly toxic substances”, said the Single Judge. The applicants before the court had prayed to release them on anticipatory bail in connection with the impugned FIR for the offences punishable under sections 304, 337, 338, 203, 285, 286, 287,427 and 114 of IPC.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Week 4 Fantasy Rankings: RB

first_imgWEEK 4 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWeek 4 features just two teams on byes: Jets and 49ers. At the running back spot, the Jets’ bye is a big one because it means an owner is without Le’Veon Bell this week. There will also be owners dealing with the absence of Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert or even Jeff Wilson, Jr., but they might just be glad to get that headache off their plate for a week. WEEK 4 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endFurther down the rankings, we see Devonta Freeman (vs. Titans) make an appearance as an RB2. Once Ito Smith left Sunday with a concussion, Freeman received all the RB carries and only ceded one total touch to another back. Seattle’s Chris Carson (@ Cardinals) has tumbled in this week’s rankings despite a good matchup with the Cardinals because Carson has lost a fumble in all three games so far this season. If Rashaad Penny is healthy enough to play, expect Carson to lose out on some touches.In Philly, we saw a near-breakout game for Miles Sanders in Week 3, as he averaged 4.1 yards on 13 carries and picked up 73 yards on two big plays in the passing game. He’s a rookie back on the rise. In Chicago, David Montgomery finally looks like he’s won Matt Nagy’s trust and should be a fantasy starter on most rosters in Week 4.WEEK 4 DFS LINEUPS:DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPP | Y! cash | Y! GPPFinally, there’s a very interesting matchup clash in Week 4: Dalvin Cook against the imposing Bears defense. Cook has rushed for more than 100 yards in all three Vikings games, carrying the ball at least 16 times each time out. The Minnesota offense goes through Cook. Even with that matchup, you’ve gotta keep Cook in your lineup this week because he’ll still get the volume even if the efficiency drops slightly. Besides, all it takes is one, like the 75-yard touchdown Cook ran for in Week 2.WEEK 4: Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Trade values | Snap countsReminder: These rankings will be adjusted throughout week, so check back often for the latest updates and analysis!MORE WEEK 4 DFS: Top values | Stacks | Lineup Builder LISTEN TO THE SN FANTASY WEEK 4 PREVIEW PODCAST BELOWWeek 4 Fantasy RB RankingsThese rankings are for standard, non-PPR leagues.1Christian McCaffrey, CAR @ HOU.2Ezekiel Elliott, DAL @ NO.3Austin Ekeler, LAC @ MIA. To the shock of no one, Miami allows the most fantasy points to running backs. In Week 3, two Cowboys running backs reached 100 yards on the ground against the Dolphins. Ekeler’s floor-ceiling combination in this game is as good as any back for Week 4.4Alvin Kamara, NO vs. DAL.5James Conner, PIT vs. CIN. The Bengals have been burned on the ground all season long, so even though Conner has been poor this season, this Monday Night Football matchup shapes up as a prime game for him to break out and return to his 2018 form. Cincinnati’s allowed 5.2 yards per carry to running backs in 2019, so at Conner’s usual workload, his yardage alone provides a high floor in Week 4.6Mark Ingram, BAL vs. CLE.7Marlon Mack, IND vs. OAK. The Raiders haven’t stopped much of anything from offenses the past two weeks, so this game shapes up as one that Indianapolis gets an early lead and uses Mack to control the game in the second half. It doesn’t hurt that Mack’s averaging a career-best 4.9 yards per carry so far in 2019. 8Josh Jacobs, OAK @ IND.9Derrick Henry, TEN @ ATL.10Nick Chubb, CLE @ BAL. The Ravens have been good at stopping the run this season, but Chubb has proven to be Cleveland’s most consistent offense in the early going. In an important divisional matchup for the Browns, expect them to lean on Chubb early and often as Baker Mayfield continues to work through his early-season struggles.11Kerryon Johnson, DET vs. KC.12Joe Mixon, CIN @ PIT. This will be a friendly game to running backs, as Pittsburgh’s also struggled to limit running back fantasy points. The Steelers have been especially burned by backs catching passes, which Mixon is good at, so he’s in line for a solid Monday night.13David Johnson, ARZ vs. SEA.14Phillip Lindsay, DEN vs. JAX. Lindsay’s biggest concern in a time share with Royce Freeman might’ve been expected to be goal-line work, as Freeman is the more physically imposing back. No worries there anymore, though, as Lindsay scored two goal-line touchdowns for Denver in Week 3. While Freeman has played a solid role, too, Lindsay is still the preferred option in the Denver backfield.15Dalvin Cook, MIN @ CHI. You can’t really sit Cook this week. He’s received at least 16 carries and topped 100 yards in each of the season’s first three weeks. Minnesota won’t abandon the running game, so Cook should get a similar carry total. Even if it’s more like 20 carries for 80 yards, all it takes is one score to make it a solid fantasy day.16Todd Gurley, LAR vs. TB.17Leonard Fournette, JAX @ DEN. Maybe the nature of Fournette’s Week 3 concerned you: Negative yardage until he broke a late run to get him over 60 yards for the night. Denver’s allowed a league-worst five rushing TDs to running backs in 2019, though. Fournette should be licking his chops when the Jags get down near the goal line, and his added work in the receiving game gives him a slightly higher floor, especially in PPR leagues.18Aaron Jones, GB vs. PHI.19David Montgomery, CHI vs. MIN.20Devonta Freeman, ATL vs. TEN. Ito Smith looks iffy due to a concussion, and if Smith misses out, Freeman should get 90-plus percent of the Falcons’ backfield touches. After a week in which Freeman finally looked more like himself, his high Week 4 usage makes him a good RB2. 21Sony Michel, NE @ BUF.22LeSean McCoy, KC @ DET. McCoy aggravated the ankle injury he dealt with last week late in Sunday’s game. Detroit is a fantasy-friendly matchup for running backs, so keep an eye on this one: If McCoy plays, you’ll want him in your lineup.23Adrian Peterson,WAS @ NYG. 24Chris Carson, SEA @ ARZ. Carson has lost a fumble in all three games this season. If Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is healthy in time for Sunday’s game, Carson becomes a risky play even in a good matchup because he’s very close to being in Pete Carroll’s doghouse regardless of how many “votes of confidence” he gets.25Royce Freeman, DEN vs. JAX26Miles Sanders, PHI @ GB. Sanders had a mini breakout in Week 3, leading Eagles backs in rushing and receiving yards. A matchup with a Packers run defense that’s allowed 5.0 yards per carry to backs might be just what the rookie from Penn State needs to have his full breakout.27Wayne Gallman, NYG vs. WAS. Gallman will fill in for Saquon Barkley (ankle) as long as the superstar is out, and he gets a friendly first matchup against the Redskins. Gallman has averaged 4.2 yards per carry in the six NFL games he has of at least 10 carries, so if the Giants trust him with 15 or so totes, he could put together a decent ballgame. He’s only shown himself as a solid pass-catcher out of the backfield in limited opportunities. 28Rashaad Penny, SEA @ ARZ29Carlos Hyde, HOU vs. CAR30Devin Singletary, BUF vs. NE31Peyton Barber, TB @ LAR32James White, NE @ BUF. The Bills have limited receiving for running backs so far this season, but they have allowed two touchdown receptions by backs. In standard leagues, White owners will need him to find paydirt to make starting him worthwhile, but at least it looks like there’s a chance of that in this matchup.33Darrel Williams, KC @ DET.34Jordan Howard, PHI @ GB35Ronald Jones, TB @ LAR. Jones finished Week 3 with a late surge to outcarry Peyton Barber, 14-13 and outgain him on the ground, 80-48. This remains a guessing-game committee, and the Rams are a tough matchup. It’s hard to trust either Tampa Bay option this week as anything more than a FLEX flier.36Jamaal Williams, GB vs. PHI.37Chris Thompson, WAS @ NYG.38Tarik Cohen, CHI vs. MIN39Kenyan Drake, MIA vs. LAC. Game flow hasn’t even helped Drake in the early going as Miami’s preferred receiving back, as neither Ryan Fitzpatrick nor Josh Rosen check down enough to let Drake compile fantasy points through the air. Maybe Drake really will get traded soon. It could only help his value.40Frank Gore, BUF vs. NE41Duke Johnson Jr., HOU vs. CAR42Nyheim Hines, IND vs. OAK43Dion Lewis, TEN @ ATL44Rex Burkhead, NE @ BUF.45Latavius Murray, NO vs. DAL46Ito Smith, ATL vs. TEN47Gus Edwards, BAL vs. CLE48Malcolm Brown, LAR vs. TB.49Alexander Mattison, MIN @ CHI50Melvin Gordon, LAC @ MIA. Gordon could play a limited role Sunday now that Justin Jackson is out. If you’re desperate and he’s active, he could score a touchdown against a bad defense. 51Kalen Ballage, MIA vs. LAC52Tony Pollard, DAL @ NO.53DeAndre Washington, OAK @ IND.54Giovani Bernard, CIN @ PIT55C.J. Prosise, SEA @ ARZ. The biggest change to our running back rankings comes right at the top: There’s no Saquon Barkley. He sustained a high-ankle sprain in Week 3 and almost surely won’t be ready to go in Week 4. Fantasy football owners who drafted Barkley with one of the top two or three picks in their drafts might be scrambling to try and find a replacement on the waiver wire, be that handcuff Wayne Gallman or someone else. Chances are, the sleeper you need to make up for Barkley’s absence might already be on your bench, a player you’ve never considered playing yet because you have Saquon, but now will be forced into using. Hopefully our Week 4 fantasy RB rankings help you uncover the hidden gem you have hiding on your own roster.One player who isn’t a sleeper anymore is Austin Ekeler. He’s just a full-blown fantasy stud who picks up points on the ground and in the receiving game. Ekeler gets the mouthwatering matchup with Miami in Week 4. The Dolphins allowed 100-yard games to both Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard in Week 3, so there should be plenty of yardage to go around for the Chargers — enough to make Justin Jackson an interesting deep-league play, especially with bye weeks here. (Update: Jackson has been ruled out. If you still want to play the backup game for the Chargers, you’d have to go with Troymaine Pope.)last_img read more
