Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has reportedly completed the construction of Pier-67 which was razed after the incident and redesigned for strengthening. The construction of the elevated girder connecting piers 66 and 67 has also been completed, marking the end of the challenging civil construction work at the mishap site.
‘‘The contractor organized a small puja and distributed sweets on the site on Monday evening. This was to mark the completion of the construction work on this stretch of the Badarpur line,’’ said sources. Local police officials were also present for the yagna.
The Pier-67 had collapsed on July 12 last year killing six construction workers.
The Amar Colony police too took part in the havan. ‘‘We had seen one of the worst accidents in DMRC’s history. It was a gesture on our part to mourn all those who died here,’’ said an officer from the southeast district police.
