A charge sheet was filed in the Morbi suspension bridge collapse case on January 27, 2022, by Deputy Superintendent of Police P. S. Zala, who is the investigating officer in the case. The 1,262-page charge sheet names ten accused, including Oreva Group Managing Director Jaysukh Patel.

Notably, the Overa group was in charge of the bridge’s operation and maintenance of the British-era suspension bridge on the Machchhu river that had collapsed. 

The Gujarat High Court issued an arrest warrant for Patel as a result, and his anticipatory bail plea will come up for hearing on February 1.

Recently, the Gujarat high court agreed to the Oreva Group’s offer on Wednesday to pay compensation to the victims of the Morbi bridge collapse that left 135 dead and several injured but said it would “not absolve it of any liability.” 

The incident claimed 134 lives.
