The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has approached the police to get the work stopped on the Badarpur-Faridabad Metro line, alleging that the construction work being carried out by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) was going on in an “unauthorised manner”.

In its complaint to the Commissioner of Police, Faridabad, lodged on April 4, NHAI’s project director Mathura said, “The DMRC construction is encroaching the right of way (ROW) of NH2. Despite repeated reminders to the DMRC officials, the Metro is yet to cease work.

The NHAI had denied permission for the work but the DMRC officials would not listen.”

The NHAI official also urged registration of FIR against officials of Metro and the executing agency — L&T Construction Co. “We have come to know that the NHAI has approached the police to stop work, but our work continues,” said Himanshu, a spokesperson for DMRC.
