The plot seems to have thickened in the Prestige Group building collapse story.
I’ll start with a correction – The collapse did not happen at the mall under construction, but rather at a large complex of a half dozen or so apartment towers under construction a few minutes up the road from that. First, the company was never willing to help with regard to interviewing the workers, one of whom is still missing and possibly under the rubble.
Then it got even better. A security guard from the site was found dead on the railroad tracks the next day. The police commisioner said that the guard had a history of drinking and ruled out foul play.
We have also verified the duty register where Shivanna had signed around 8 pm, after completing his duties. We have eye-witnesses who had seen Shivanna manning the people after the building collapse, so there is no doubt over the reason of his death. The city Railway Police who have registered the unnatural death, are continuing with the investigation.’
Gee… the company is impeding an investigation and suddenly this guy turns up dead on railway tracks. I wonder how many lakh (100’s of thousands of Rupees) it took for city police commissioner Shankar Bidari to come to that conclusion so quickly.
There have been arrests in this case, but something tells me that these people are scapegoats.
