If I didn't know your background, I would have thought the article to be a spoof.

1.    90 million rays (what kind of measurement unit is that, apparently 1 million rays = 1mSv)

2.    Glowing TLDs - not unless you get them hot (temperature)!!!

3.    Nuclear radiation from a CT scanner?

4.    90mSv harmless?!?!?! - so why are our dose limits much lower than that?

As you say, ridiculous

Best regards

This is the most ridiculous quote yet:

The four daily-wage labourers were exposed to radiation when they were

cleaning and painting a tunnel called the Spent Fuel Transfer Duct (SFTD).

The control room released a pair of spent fuel bundles in the duct while

the labourers were in it. According to Dutta, "The workers came out when

realized that something was amiss as their thermo luminiscence detectors

started glowing.''

TLDs glow! I don't think so!!! So many words, so many meaningless and

inaccurate statements. No wonder the public is so confused and torn

between the benefits and risks of nuclear power.
