The locals previously informed a no. of times to the Durgapur Steel Plant about the illegal construction of a overbridges in a National Highway would lead to an accident amy time.But the plant authorities were not bothered about the fact.
On hearing this incident the police commisonates and officers reached the site to make suitable arrangements to take aside the stuck plane under the bridge . A huge crowd gathered there to see the incident inspite of the cold weather.
After trying for about 6hrs, the plane was finally removed from under the overbridge.
