“The primary cause seems to be flushing out of hot water while de-choking a pipe by three contract workers of Haldia Refinery,” the PSU said in a statement.

They suffered scalding injuries due to exposure to hot water.

After preliminary treatment at the refinery hospital, the three were shifted to a Kolkata facility for better treatment, it said.
