    100 employees evacuated, operations shut down immediately after explosion UPPER MACUNGIE TWP., Pa. - A small explosion at the Samuel Adams brewery in Lehigh County injured two employees and forced the evacuation of about 100 others, officials said.

    The explosion happened shortly before noon Thursday inside the boiler room of the brewery, which is located adjacent to Interstate 78, near Route 100, in Upper Macungie Township. Workers were starting up one of the boilers when the explosion happened, said Michelle Sullivan, a spokeswoman for the Boston Beer Company, who added that the boiler room is a free-standing structure at the brewery. Employees immediately called 911, shut down all operations and evacuated the brewery's buildings, as per the company's protocol, Sullivan said. Two workers were treated at the scene for minor injuries. One complained of eye irritation; the other suffered a bump on the head, Sullivan said.

    Samuel Adams brewery, Upper Macungie Twp., Lehigh Co.

The company was given the all-clear by the fire marshal and the fire department, who determined the...

  • Suspended IAS officer B.P. Acharya on Friday advanced an argument in court seeking bail as the three-month time limit set by the High Court for the CBI to complete the investigation against him in the Emaar township scam ended on August 23. Moreover, the ‘mastermind’ of the scam, by the CBI’s own admission – Koneru Prasad – was recently given bail by the High Court, Acharya’s counsel V. Surender Rao informed the court. This is the third bail application by Acharya since his arrest on January 30.

    Mr. Rao said the arrest of his client itself was malafide as a voluminous charge-sheet in the case was filed by the CBI within two days of picking him up.

    “The charge-sheet could not have been written in those two days when he was in the custody of CBI.”

    Approval not sought Moreover, the CBI did not seek approval of the Central government in investigating charges against him as required by the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act which was enacted for the purpose of corruption cases.

    He reminded the court about a judgment of the Supreme Court which said that the trial courts need not consider the danger of accused tampering evidence if they were released after the charge-sheet was filed.

    No pecuniary advantage The allegations against Acharya were in the nature of omissions and commissions which did not result in any pecuniary advantage to him, he added.
