On May 14, Tuesday, the probe report for the Himalaya Bridge (CSMT) accident was submitted to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) Commissioner, Praveen Pardeshi. Meanwhile, the latest inquiry report does not name any new engineers. The move comes in response to the recent protest by civic engineers over the arrest of former chief engineer SO Kori. 

Accordingly, now the report has been forwarded to the Deputy Municipal Commissioner (DMC) Vishwas Shankarwar who is currently conducting a full-fledged departmental enquiry (FFDE), for his reference.

The leader of the Municipal Engineers' Unions, Sainath Rajadhyaksha said that the outcome of the report was expected as it wasn't the engineers' fault. He also added that the bridge collapsing was an accident and the civic body was making engineers scapegoats. 

Earlier, in order to protest against this, BMC engineers had gone on a mass leave from Thursday, May 9, for the next 15 days. However, after meeting the new BMC Commissioner, the engineers decided to withdraw the protest.
