After Bluelines Delhi Metro Became Bloodlines Claimed 3 lives

In yet another mishap at a Delhi Metro construction site, three laborers were injured after they fell from the building of under-construction Govindpuri Metro station in southeast Delhi on Saturday night.

Sources said they were immediately rushed to the Moolchand Hospital from where one person was discharged after first-aid while the other two are still under observation.

The police said that it was a minor accident. ‘‘The laborers were wearing the protective gear. However, they slipped and fell down. We are investigating the case. If required, we will lodge a case,’’ said the officer investigating the case. He added that both the injured were out of danger.

Govindpuri Metro station is part of the Central Secretariat-Badarpur line.

Senior police and DMRC officials refused to comment on the issue. Additional commissioner of police (southeast) said that he was not aware of such an incident. For the entire day, none of the Metro spokespersons issued an official communication.
