CE in charge of Bengaluru metro work not named in FIR

Big fish appear to have been exempt from responsibility for the fatal subway disaster.

In defiance of the chief minister's directives, the KR's package 1 (Benniganahalli-Kempapura) chief engineer in charge of civil construction In the FIR that the police have filed on the event, the Puram-airport metro line is not mentioned.

The in-charge chief engineer from the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), according to a well-placed source in the state administration, was among those who were ordered to be punished for the terrible disaster by the chief minister.

Police have only detained joint engineer Jaffer Sadiq, executive engineer Mahesh Bandekari, and deputy chief engineer Venkatesh Shetty. The FIR does not list the chief engineer or any other higher-ranking officers.

According to police, they used a BMRCL list. Only individuals identified in the FIR have been suspended by the BMRCL.

The 38.44-km KR Puram airport line is being built in three sections: the 11.68-km Kempapura-Bagalur Cross section, the 11-km Benniganahalli-Kempapura section, and 15.01-km Doddajala-airport. One package is under the management of a chief engineer.

Package 1 contains the under-construction metro pier (number 218) that gave way and toppled, causing the fatal accident (Benniganahalli-Kempapura).

A three-person internal technical team has been assembled by the BMRCL to look into the accident's root cause. Chief engineers from the quality, safety, and work departments make up the team. In two days, the report is anticipated.

The civil engineering department at the Indian Institute of Science has also been asked to independently investigate the occurrence and provide a report.

The airport line's contractor, Nagarjuna Constructions Company (NCC) Limited, has also faced criticism. The large construction company with headquarters in Hyderabad has not yet commented on the incident or answered questions from the media.

The company's second metro contract in Bengaluru is for the airport line. The first involved designing and building viaducts for Reach 4's 3.6-km extension (Yelachenahalli-Anjanapura). 7,220 metres of precast parapets were cast and erected as part of the project.

The line is currently in use. The government source stated that despite the victims' families' requests for the corporation to be banned, such a move was improbable given the significance of the airport metro line. The tender cannot be cancelled either. The business might escape with just financial fines.

The Electronics City flyover, several TTMCs (Traffic Transit Management Centers) for the Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC), and a two-level grade separator close to Nayandahalli were also constructed in Bengaluru by NCC Ltd. Additionally, it secured metro contracts in Nagpur, Pune, Mumbai, and Navi Mumbai.
