Letter Published In Gulf News UAE on 8 April 16 ,Tragedy from cutting corners
This is with reference to the recent flyover accident in Kolkatta, India (‘Murder charge mulled in overpass collapse’, Gulf News, April 3). The tragedy saw many casualties and people injured, which is unacceptable. This construction project started in 2009 and is yet to be completed, and so, this mishap has occurred. Poor materials and improper supervision are the main contributing factors, in my opinion. I am wondering how the construction company can dismiss this incident, by simply calling it ‘an act of God’. The guilty should be punished rigorously and it should be a lesson for others who want this type of work. I pray for the victims and hope for a speedy recovery for the injured.
