I will launch an investigation to find why the truss of the building caved in,” DC Anantnag told the media outside the auditorium building.
He also assured to take up the matter with the administrative secretary of the R & B department to evaluate it technically as the project was executed by the department. “There is certainly negligence and we will take exemplary action against those who are found involved,” he added.

“We may require some time to access the damages and cause of collapsing. All things will be evaluated ranging from technical elevation to going deep into designing. We need to find whether it collapsed because of technical fault or due to sub-standard material or someone played a mischief,” a senior engineer posted at R&B Division Khanabal told Early Times.
He said that so far the Government or R&B department hasn’t initiated a probe, however the district administration might have launched the investigation as the Deputy Commissioner himself visited the site during the day.
