Details on 6000 tonne iron bridge from the Adani firm stolen in Malad, Mumbai; 4 people arrested
According to the official from Bangur Nagar police station, the 90-foot-long metal structure in Malad (west) was erected by utility business Adani Electricity to transfer enormous power wires.
The temporary structure was relocated to another location in the vicinity a few months ago when a permanent bridge was erected over the drain, he said.
However, the temporary bridge was discovered to be gone on June 26; as a result, the power company reported it to the police, the official added.
Since there were no CCTV cameras deployed at the scene, authorities used footage from cameras placed elsewhere in the vicinity to search for the large car on June 11, the official said.
The vehicle was then located by the police using the registration number. According to the official, “the vehicle had gas-cutting machines that were used to disassemble the bridge and steal iron weighing 6,000 kg.”
After further inquiry, the police located a worker for the company that had been hired to construct the bridge. The official reported that the police detained the staff member and three of his companions last week.
He stated that the stuff taken from the location has been found.
