Cases against companies for security lapses should be filed in criminal court

My name is Jagdish Patel. I am a lawyer from Gujarat. I heard the news that a case was filed against some companies in Raigarh in Chhattisarh after 8 workers died in 3 months. I would like to suggest that as per rules these cases should be filed in criminal courts and not in labor court. Some times officials file such cases in labor court to reduce the burden on industrialists. People working on this subject should be aware of this. For more Patel Ji can be reached at 02652345576
