Copper cables worth 28 l for a stolen subway track | Ahmedabad News

AHMEDABAD: Copper cables worth Rs 28.5 lakh intended for the Ahmedabad metro project have been stolen from Sabarmati. The project contractor had to go to court to register an FIR.
The plaintiff is Vishal Poddar, an engineer with the contractor’s company. On Friday, Poddar filed a theft complaint, saying that on December 28, copper cables were brought from Gyaspur depot to Sabarmati for installation on the metro track.
Poddar said on January 16 he went to the site for an inspection and found that a drum with the cables was missing. He said the drum was stolen despite the presence of security guards. He said that several efforts had been made to register a complaint with the Sabarmati police. A complaint was also sent by registered mail to the police station.
But while no investigation was launched, Poddar on February 26 sent a request to the police commissioner. Even that didn’t yield any results, so Poddar moved the court. Following the court’s instructions, he filed a complaint with the Sabarmati police on Friday.
The cables were to be laid alongside the track on the APMC-Motera North-South Corridor which is an elevated section. The complainant told police that drums of copper cable were unloaded onto the tracks using cranes.
