Two members of the same family were killed in the incident that took place when the PWD was remodeling a drain in front of the building.

“The foundation of the building was 5 feet deep whereas the PWD was building a ten feet deep drain on the location that clearly led to a dangerous situation. The PWD officials should have asked the family to vacate the premises which would have saved their lives," said Mishra.
