The construction work of DDA’s multi-storey residential society is going on in Sector-14 of Dwarka.

Deepak Yadav, a laborer, told that he saw from above that the lift came down. The workers were covered in blood. The officers present on the spot neither informed nor informed anyone after this. When the laborers started making noise, the police was informed and the injured were rushed to the hospital. At the same time, another worker told that he saw that some laborers have fallen.

He told that he had called his acquaintance Surendra from his village a few days ago and got it installed here. He used to be her brother-in-law in the relationship. Another worker told that my nephew Basant was working here. Both of us were doing our work in different buildings. Suddenly someone told me that the lift has collapsed in the building and many workers are injured. When I went there, I came to know that my nephew is also Basant. According to DDA, an inquiry committee has been constituted in this matter. She will conduct a thorough investigation into this accident and action will also be taken against whoever is found guilty. The cause of the accident would be known only after the committee’s report is received.
