A police station built at a cost of around Rs 5 crore collapsed in Giridih district.

After Bihar, the incident of under-construction bridge collapse has come to light from Jharkhand. A police station built at a cost of around Rs 5 crore in Giridih district was washed away in the pre-monsoon rains. The piers of the bridge caved in due to heavy rains and it collapsed. People are angry with the negligence of the police. They allege that the bridge collapsed due to poor quality materials due to corruption.

A bridge is under construction between Dumritola and Kariphari villages in the Devari police station area of ​​the district. This bridge is being built over the river Arga at a cost of about 5 crore rupees. Heavy rain on Saturday evening caused the water level of the river to rise, causing the piers of the under-construction bridge to sink and the girder to collapse due to the strong current of the river. The bridge collapse is being investigated by the department.

The girder broke with a loud thud

The bridge is being constructed by Road Construction Department, Road Division Giridih. The construction of the bridge has been given to Om Nam Shivay Construction Company. Heavy rain fell on Saturday night, causing one of the piers of the bridge to fall and the girder to break with a loud thud. The collapse of the bridge exposed its construction work. After the incident, there was a commotion in the department. Officials went to the spot and collected information. An inquiry into the incident has been ordered.

Another bridge has already collapsed

This is not the first incident of bridge collapse due to rain in Jharkhand. Earlier, a newly constructed bridge over the Kanchi river at Bandu in the former capital Ranchi at a cost of around Rs 10 crore collapsed due to rains a few years ago. Dozens of villages were cut off due to the collapse of the bridge.
