Mangaluru, May 4: The Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) and the public allegedly opened the Harekal – Adyar Bridge and the gate for breakwall for salt water at Kindi dam on April 4 without obtaining permission from the Department of Small Irrigation.

In this connection, the assistant executive engineer of the department has filed a police complaint against DYFI at Konaje police station.

The work that was approved under the Paschima Vahini project was completed on March 31. The gates were not opened for traffic as the model code of conduct was in force from March 29. However, the gates were illegally opened by DYFI at 7:45 am on April 4.

The contractors had closed the bridge with temporary gates and controlled the traffic, but the gates were opened again at 9:15 pm for traffic.

A case was registered at Konaje police station based on a complaint from Vishnu Kamath, assistant executive engineer of the Small Irrigation and Groundwater Development sub-division.
