Police sources told that the visit was to cross-check some claims made by the nine staff members of the company who’ve been arrested so far. It is noted that Jaysukhbhai Patel had signed the contract with the Morbi municipal corporation.
Meanwhile, relatives of the dead have questioned the BJP government, as have Opposition parties including Congress and AAP, particularly when elections are weeks away.
