The footage was quickly picked up by news outlets and investigations revealed that the government building had been declared dangerous by work safety inspectors two years ago but no action was taken to move the workers to a safer location.
“The building construction department had two years back declared the building hazardous and unfit for use. The authorities have, however, found no alternate accommodation to shift the office,” one employee, Amit Kumar Pandey, told Daily Mail. “The situation has been aggravated due to rains as the entire building leaks thereby compromising the safety of office equipment and records. The matter has been communicated to senior officers many times in writing, but nothing has been done,” he added.
But water trickling in through the roof is not what prompted employees to start wearing motorcycle helmets at the office, parts of the roof have been falling on their heads for some time and it’s now in such a bad state that it could come down any day.
“This is quite an old building. Walls and the roof of the building are in a very bad shape.
Water starts trickling the moment it rains. The roof can cave in any day,” another employee, Parvez Ahmad, said.
