3 cranes topple clearing yesterday's debris
Three cranes toppled, injuring six people on the same site of yesterday's Delhi Metro mishap. The cranes were clearing away debris from yesterday's accident when they collapsed onto nearby buildings.

THREE CRANES toppled injuring six people on the same site of yesterday's Metro mishap. The incident  occurred on Monday morning at the same site of yesterday's overbridge collapse, near Lady Sri Ram (LSR) College.


The cranes were clearing away debris from yesterday’s accident when they collapsed onto nearby buildings. The accident occurred only a few hours after Delhi Metro chief, E. Sreedharan, left the site after inspection.

Sreedharan’s resignation has not been accepted by Sheila Dikshit. She had earlier rejected Sreedharan’s appeal for resigning from the post, saying, “The Metro needs him. He has done a good job not only in Delhi but through out the country. Hence, I have not accepted his resignation”.

Clearing operations at the site were hampered by Sunday night's rains. Water supplies in nearby areas continue to be disrupted as a result of yesterday's mishap when the pillars felt on water pipelines. The incidents have caused considerable damage to the DMRC, in terms of life and money. Traffic has been disrupted too and police have advised people not to go via the Zamrupur-LSR college route.

The DMRC has formed a four-member committee to enquire into the factors leading to the accident.
