The retaining wall of the flyover had collapsed on May 13 after which the bridge was closed for the movement of traffic. The MC officials since then had been blaming the rodents for collision of the bridge. An inquiry committee was constituted by deputy commissioner Pardeep Agrawal in which the additional commissioner Shena Aggrawal, executive engineer MC Rahul Gagneja, Rakesh Garg, executive engineer PWD (B&R) and executive engineer of GLADA Ranbir Singh were included.
Groups of engineers and architects have condemned the inquiry report and have also raised doubts over the same. The members of Hindu organization said they have honoured the rats by installing a statue on the flyover and naming it as Pehalwan pull.
