Initial investigation reveals that the ride collapsed due to a defect in the bolts. The bolts broke away when they could not support the load, causing the ball bearings to slip.
It resulted in the tragic crash. Before the opening, the park management laid so many promises about safety and security. However, such is definitely not the case now. They even said that the entire installation was of international standards and foreign engineers themselves took up the job.
Despite their claims, it failed. The ride fell and the tragic incident occurred. The management was nowhere to be found and nobody has provided a proper explanation.
