Youth drowns in river, body still missing

Meghnagar : A laborer, Rajkumar Kushwah, working at the construction site of the bridge of the Anas River, had reportedly drowned on Thursday. However, no clue has been found against the missing body. It may be noted that the bridge construction process is going since long. Yet the place is full of chaos and lacks necessary facilities. There is no trace of any security and information about the construction. This is the reason that even the laborers are not aware of the contractors or the construction company. It may also be noted that construction work during the rains is quite dangerous, yet no safety measures are available for the workers.

As per the information received, installation of pillars was being done at Anant Chaturdashi, when the water level in the river was quite low. The water level started rising after August 29, yet the construction work did not stop. The laborers working for the construction of the bridge, have been hired from North India. These laborers are living on the banks of the river, temporarily.
