As many as 135 people died after the British-era “jhulta pul” or the hanging cable bridge on the Machchhu river in Morbi collapsed on October 30.
Morbi-based clock and e-bike maker Oreva Group was given the contract by the Morbi Municipality to repair and operate the hanging bridge for 15 years. The firm had claimed on October 26 that it had roped in experts for the repair work, adding that the material used was built as per specifications by “specialised firms”.
Probe following the tragedy has pointed to several irregularities in awarding the work contract, the renovation work itself and the violation of safety protocols after the bridge was reopened to public last month.
