Bhubaneswar: Transport Minister Dr Nrusingha Charan Sahu visited the SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack to meet victims of the Mahanadi bridge bus accident and family members of the deceased.
In response to a media query, the Minister said the State Transport Deportment should not be solely blamed for the tragic mishap that has taken lives of 10 people and left about 42 persons injured. Of the injured, seven persons were still undergoing treatment in the ICU.
The Minister said the Government has already issued an order to conduct a probe into the incident.
“The Transport Department is not only responsible. Many departments have the responsibilities to check accidents,” he said.
