New Delhi: The Delhi high court on Friday issued notice to Gammon India, a contractor in Delhi Metro Rail project, on a petition filed by the family members of victims of the 12 July mishap, seeking compensation.
Justice Rewa Khetrapal directed the company to file its response by 20 August when the matter will be taken up for further hearing.
The court passed the order on a joint petition filed by family members of four persons who lost their lives in the mishap.
Six persons, including an engineer, were killed and over a dozen others injured when an under-construction over-bridge of the Delhi Metro collapsed on 12 July in south Delhi.
The petitioners pleaded before the court that the family of the deceased should get a compensation of Rs50 lakh each while injured persons should be given Rs25 lakh each.
