Nine workers sustained serious injuries after a slab collapsed during the construction of a hospital at around 7:30 pm on Tuesday, June 18, in Dighi. The incident happened at Charholi Budruk’s Ajeenkya DY Patil College of Engineering. Two individuals, identified as Mohammad Abrar Alam, the carpenter contractor, and Mohammad Rashid, the concrete contractor, have been implicated in the incident, with a case filed against them at Dighi Police Station under sections 337, 338, and 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

According to police reports, the hospital was being constructed within the Ajeenkya DY Patil University’s Engineering College campus. The collapse happened during the construction of the building’s porch when the slab, which was being installed without adequate support, gave way unexpectedly. As a result, nine workers suffered serious injuries. The complaint lodged by Policeman Anil Ramchandra Shinde, aged 36, highlights that the accused contractors failed to exercise proper caution during the construction process, leading to the unfortunate incident.

Authorities have initiated an investigation into the matter to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the collapse and determine any negligence or lapses in safety protocols that may have contributed to the incident. The legal proceedings will likely delve into the responsibilities of the contractors involved and whether they adhered to construction standards and safety regulations. The injured workers’ conditions and any subsequent actions for their welfare are also likely to be part of the ongoing investigation.

This incident underscores the critical importance of adhering to stringent safety measures in construction projects to prevent such accidents and ensure the well-being of all workers involved in such endeavors. The legal process will aim to establish accountability and prevent similar incidents in the future through rigorous enforcement of safety protocols and standards.
