December 18, 2003 19:27 IST
The Patna high court on Thursday directed the Bihar government to sincerely execute the security plan entailing providing 24-hour security for smooth completion of the Golden Quadrilateral Project.
A division bench comprising Chief Justice Ravi S Dhavan and Justice Shashank Kumar Singh asked the Chief Secretary K A H Subramanian whether he was satisfied with the plan.
The latter replied that he was personally monitoring the situation and assured that the work on the National Highway project would go on unhindered.
"The court will go by your guarantee that future work on the Golden Quadrilateral Project will proceed unhindered," the bench told the chief secretary. The judges fixed January 19 as the next date for a briefing on the progress in the execution of the security plan at the project site.
The court was acting on a PIL filed by advocate M P Gupta alleging that the future of the project was in danger pointing to the killing of National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) project manager Satyendra Kumar Dubey at Gaya on November 27.
