Morbi Bridge collapses
Over 130 people died in the Machu River on 30 October when the suspension bridge at Morbi was rusted while undergoing renovation and the bolts came loose with broken anchor pins.
The investigation by the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) said the new metal floor increased the weight of the bridge.
Both repair contractors are not experienced in doing this type of repair and renovation work. Police have so far arrested nine people, including four from the Oreva Group, which operates the British-era suspension bridge in Gujarat.
