On 9th September 2020, an engineer working with Oil India Limited (OIL) died after being electrocuted while struggling, along with his other teammates, to douse the fire that has been burning in the Baghjhan Oil Field in Tinsukia District of Assam since June. Arnab Kishore, the young engineer, lost consciousness and fell while working with some electrical equipment at the site of destruction. While people may view this as an isolated incident, it is but a part of a string of accidents that have befallen the inhabitants, villages, and ecology of the area.
The significance of dignity in human rights jurisprudence
Riya Rajayyan - Sep 09,2020
The Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court struck down a part of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code as unconstitutional as it offended the right to privacy on September 6. As noted in K.S. Puttaswamy, privacy has been treated as a fundamental right and a premise for this upliftment was that the privacy of the individual is an essential aspect of dignity. Section 377, a 158-year-old colonial law, refers to 'unnatural offences' and says whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse 'against the order of nature' with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for a term, which may extend to 10 years, and shall also be liable to pay a fine.

These worried students have taken to social media to lead campaigns against the government’s decision to conduct the examinations, citing the various uncertainties that they have.
