by The Canadian Parvasi
Amidst reports that the Morbi bridge collapsed due to malpractice and negligence during renovation, nine persons involved in the renovation have been arrested in Gujrat. Among the arrested, four have reportedly been sent to police custody until November 5, while the other five have been sent to judicial custody.
It is reported that two managers of the Oreva Group, the firm that undertook the renovation of the bridge, were two of the four sent to police custody. The other two are said to be fabrication work contractors.
Ticket collectors, bridge repair contractors and three security guards appointed to contain the crowds are all said to also be among the arrested.
One of the Oreva managers, when presented in front of the court, claimed that the collapse was an “act of god.”
