The officials of the producer company DBL reached Bilaspur and informed the administration officials about this.

The DBL company, which is working on the construction of two bridges along with tunnels number 14, 15 and 16 on the 63 kilometer long railway line from Punjab to Bilaspur, had complained to the police after this incident and the tunnel was demolished.

DBL Company has taken a tender of about 700 crores on this track, under which tunnel number 14 and other two tunnels and two bridges are being built.
