    This is indeed a very sad event. should not have happened.
    Is this the first time agricultural machines are sold? No. they have been sold as far back as 1940's. 4 wheel tractors for instance. First safety message do not travel on the mudguard of the 4 wheel tractor to all buyers! How many adhere to this? Mostly none. Users must be disciplined when using machines and dont blame the sellers and agricultural officers.

    When farmers are trained to use these equipment, safety aspects also must be taught to them. This is the duty of the Agricultural Officers.
