An SUV plunged 15-20 feet deep after a service road caved in alongside the Agra-Lucknow expressway today following heavy rains, prompting the Uttar Pradesh government to order a probe. However, no one was injured in the incident, officials said. “A third-party probe has been ordered into the caving-in of the side road of the expressway (16 km from Agra towards Lucknow) by RITES Limited. The construction of the damaged road will be done by the construction agency at its cost,” Uttar Pradesh Expressway Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) Chairman Avanish Awasthi said. The UP government asked railways consultancy firm RITES Limited to complete the probe within 15 days.
