PM Shehbaz orders inquiry into Bara Kahu flyover collapse

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Friday, taking notice of the collapse of under-construction flyover at Bara Kahu, formed a committee to probe into the incident.

According to details, the inquiry committee headed by former Interior Secretary Shahid Khan will examine every aspect of the incident.

The committee was directed to prepare an inquiry report on an emergency basis and submit it to the prime minister.

PM Shehbaz said that no negligence would be tolerated in the construction of the Bara Kahu flyover project.

On February 25, at least two labourers were killed and three others were injured after a pillar of an under-construction flyover in Islamabad's Bhara Kahu area collapsed.

As per the rescue officials, heavy construction material was being pitched on it when the portion caved in.

The 5.6 km-long Bhara Kahu bypass (including a 1km flyover) starts from Murree Road at Malpur and culminates on Murree Road near the Jugi bus stop from where the flyover begins till the end of the local bazaar towards Murree.
