NHAI officials booked after portion of Gurugram flyover collapses
The contractor and officials of the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) have been booked in connection with the falling off of a portion of the Rampura flyover on the Delhi-Jaipur national highway on Monday, police said on Wednesday.
The case was registered on the complaint of a group of Right to Information (RTI) activists including Ramesh Yadav, Baldev Mehra, Omprakash Kataria and others.
The accused have been booked under Section 336 (endangering life or personal safety of others) and Section 34 (common intent) of the Indian Penal Code at Kherki Daula Police Station, Yadav told IANS.
"The affected portion of the expressway has been cordoned off and is being repaired. It would take at least ten more days to make it fully functional," an official said.
"Light traffic is passing on the elevated road using the two lanes. Traffic passing under the affected flyover has been completely stopped as repair work by NHAI is in progress," chief of Manesar traffic police station Munesh Kumar said.
