Charges, counter-charges after mishap
MAJID NABI
SRINAGAR, Jan 31: Allegations and counter allegations followed after the under-construction Budshah Chowk-Rambagh flyover suffered partial damage after 36 ton ‘unfixed rafter’ fell down on a crane when earthquake of 6.1 Richter scale shook Kashmir valley this afternoon.

Official sources said that an unfixed rafter weighing around thirty six tons which was put on pedestal two days ago fell down on a parked crane near Aloocha Bagh area due to strong earthquake.

Dr Tanveer who is Health Safety and Environment Consultant at Economic Reconstruction Agency (ERA) said two of the girders were already fixed while one was yet to be put on pedestal.

“We usually cordon the area to restrict entry of unauthorized persons; these girders are usually lifted through cranes during night and then fixed with iron roads. We had fixed two of them and preparing to fix third one,” he added.

He said since the fixation third rafter was not done, it fell on the crane due to imbalance after earthquake hit Kashmir valley this afternoon.

“No one was injured in the incident. No worker was there when the incident took place, had the rafter been fixed on time it would not have fallen down,” said Dr Tanveer.

However, locals accused the authorities of putting lives of common people at risk by taking their responsibilities for-granted.

“There are hundreds of labourers working, people also park their vehicles under the flyover, who would be responsible if god forbid any labourer or commoner had came under the girder,” said Mohammad Amin a local from Aloocha Bagh.
