Three engineers suspended for using poor quality raw material
Delhi Development Minister Gopal Rai on Wednesday suspended three engineers of flood and irrigation department for allegedly using poor quality raw material to construct a community centre in North-west Delhi’s Najafgarh area.
The minister’s move comes after he received several complaints from the local residents about the engineers allegedly using poor quality raw material to build the community centre in Harijan Basti situated in Khaira village.
Rai, who also holds the charge of Flood and Irrigation Department, has formed a probe committee to be headed by Special Commissioner (Development).
“Minister visited the construction site and found poor construction material being used to build the community centre this morning. It is the project of <g data-gr-id="17">development</g> department.

Thereafter, he suspended all the three officials,” a senior government official said. The official also said that a sample of construction material was also picked up from the site and sent to a laboratory for examination.
