The Gujarat government has suspended Morbi Municipality's Chief Officer Sandipsinh Zala in the wake of the bridge collapse incident that claimed 135 lives, a senior official said on Friday.
The British-era suspension bridge, built on the river Machchhu in Morbi town, had collapsed on Sunday evening. The people who died in the tragedy included women and children.
''The state Urban Development Department has suspended Chief Officer of Morbi Municipality Sandipsinh Zala,'' said Morbi District Collector G T Pandya.
