KOZHIKODE: The Public Works Department has taken action against two officers for initiating repair works on a road that did not have any defects. Kunnamangalam assistant engineer G Biju and overseer PK Dhanya have been suspended following a directive from Minister Muhammad Riyas.

The incident came to the Minister's notice after locals protested and filed a complaint against the repair works at Ozhukkara on the Kozhikode Medical College - Kunnamangalam road. The tarring was done on a road where there were no problems of any kind. By the time the locals came to know about the incident, about 17 meters of tarring had been completed. The contractors removed all the materials from the road after the locals staged a protest.

Upon learning about the incident, Minister Riyas visited the spot and spoke to the officials. The minister issued the order to suspend the two officers after going through the report submitted by PWD Executive Engineer.
