CONSEQUENCES OF THE DISASTER OCCURED:
A desperate search for loved ones
Relatives of those who were caught in the flyover collapse in Kolkata on Thursday got admitted in the nearby Marwari Relief Society and Medical College and Hospital, where the injured and dead were taken could not provide any information about their loved ones.
A junior doctor said most of the people came with injuries on their head or upper parts of the body. Many were seen desperately looking for their injured relatives. “My brother-in-law Sujit Debnath is admitted here, but nobody can tell me how to locate him. I have been here for over one hour and still clueless about how to meet him,” he said.
Several relatives of those who died did not know where the bodies were.
A 24-year-old college student and local resident, Amit Bihani, was sitting in shops adjacent to the flyover, when it collapsed. He said he heard a loud noise and the ground started shaking.
About 60-metre-long portion of the under-construction Vivekananda flyover in Kolkata had collapsed on Thursday following which the police registered a case against IVRCL under sections 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) and 407 of the IPC and sealed the local office of the company engaged in flyover’s construction.
IVRCL’S shares fell another 6% on Friday.
