Varanasi Accident: Four officers suspended

"I spoke to UP CM Yogi Adityanath Ji regarding the situation due to the collapse of an under-construction flyover in Varanasi".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday that on the one hand his joy knew no bounds because of the Karnataka win, on the other his heart was weighed down under a heavy burden because several people in his constituency Varanasi had died in a flyover "accident". The accident left 18 people dead and many more injured.

DNA reported that Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, who is also the PWD minister, suspended the chief project manager of the bridge HC Tiwari, project manager KR Sudan, assistant engineer Rajendra Singh and junior engineer Lal Chand.

The senior officer said the pressure to complete such projects was always there when asked whether the constraint of the deadline to complete the project could have caused the flyover to collapse.

The FIR was lodged at the Sigra police station here a day after a portion of the flyover being built by the corporation fell on passing vehicles.

National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams from Vijayawada & Visakhapatnam and State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) teams from Kakinada & Visakhapatnam have been deployed for rescue operations in the Godavari boat capsize incident.

Adityanath had formed a three-member committee to investigate the incident.

Authorities said no work was going on when the concrete slab crashed. He announced a Rs five lakh ex-gratia to the next of kin of the deceased and Rs two lakh to the seriously injured.

The flyover has been under-construction since 2016 at an estimated total cost of Rs 129 crores.

4 officials have been suspended and the UP Government is closely monitoring the situation in helping those who are affected by this crash.
