Times of India reported that the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has filed a police complaint against Era Infra Engineering Limited, the firm which was assigned construction of the 134km Bareilly-Sitapur stretch of NH-24, a portion of which caved in on Saturday.
The stretch opened to public in April became the second such incident this week after a portion of the Agra-Lucknow expressway caved in on Wednesdayplunging an SUV into a 60-foot-deep sinkhole, 35 km from Agra city.
Police officials, however, said that they had received a complaint from NHAI, but there were hardly any allegations into it to book anyone in an FIR.
Inspector general DK Thakur told TOI, “We are discussing with legal experts to find out under what sections an FIR should be lodged since it seems to be a civil matter, and not a criminal case.” Read More
