1 min read

With no progress in the criminal complaint that he had filed with the Parwanoo police station against NHAI and its associates, Former Deputy Mayor of Shimla,Tikender Singh Panwar claims that he will demand the setting up of a Special Investigating Team (SIT) from the Himachal government to look into the matter.

While the Solan police officials claim that the records from the NHAI have been called for , Panwar says that it is only SIT that can unbiesly look into the matter. He also claims that he would demand a Special Commission of Inquiry to be headed by a retired Supreme court judge, preferably from Himachal, to be set up by the state to look into each and every aspect of the trail of damage and destruction that the recent rain fury had left in Himachal Pradesh.

It was recently when, in respect to the recent monsoon fury that had left a trail of destruction, death and injury in Himachal Pradesh, a criminal complaint was filed against the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and its associates accusing them of resorting to unscientific methods during the construction of a four-lane national highway (NH) between Parwanoo and Solan by Panwar. While no FIR was registered in this regard by the Solan police department, Panwar in his complaint had held NHAI responsible for not only damaging the natural ecosystem but also led to massive loss of human lives and assets of this tourist state.
