Demanding a 10-day detention for four of the nine arrested, DSP Zala said in oral presentations in the courtroom. … Only the platform (deck) has been changed within the scope of maintenance and repair. No further work was undertaken as per the FSL (Forensic Science Laboratory) report which came from the team Gandhinagar“.

“The bridge was on cable and no oiling or greasing of the cable was done. From where the cable broke, the cable rusted. If the cable was repaired, this incident would not have happened. No document has been preserved as to what work was done and how it was done. The purchased/used material, if its quality has been checked, remains to be inspected,” said Zala.

Public prosecutor H.S. Panchal later said The Indian Express that the investigation so far has shown that the contractors “were not qualified engineers” and that “manufacturing work was done by them”.

Panchal said, “Investigation shows that the bridge could have collapsed because of the aluminum planks on the bridge.”

Rawal told the court that Parekh had no role in ascertaining the safety of the bridge. At this point, Parekh approached the judge and told him that he was a graphic designer and a media manager at a company.

“Everyone worked very hard, from the CEO of the company to the lower level employees, but it was God’s will (Bhagwan ni ichcha) that such an unfortunate incident happened,” Parekh said.

Raval argued that the contractors were only responsible for labor works such as welding, electrical installation etc. and they did so on the basis of the goods they received.

The prosecution, attributing the role of the arrested ticket sellers and security guards to “failure to control the crowd”, did not seek their further detention, arguing that “they were not trained” cadres.

While the prosecution said the two Oreva managers were responsible for the bridge repair and maintenance contract and were involved in the repair work, the defense said the two managers “have no role to play with respect. to find out the suitability of the bridge.

Meanwhile, the Morbi Bar Association on Tuesday passed a “unanimous” resolution asking its member lawyers not to represent “any of the accused in connection with the incident”.
