Thermocol sheets were blown away by strong winds

The PWD Engineer who had given the idea of placing thermocol sheets on Vaigai Dam water has been issued a transfer order after the incident was widely criticised. Muthupandi, Executive Engineer (EE), PWD, Periyar-Vaigai Division, was transferred to Arupukottai.

He was left with just two months of service and the transfer is seen as a punishment, claimed sources. A PWD higher official said that the transfer had nothing to do with thermocol fiasco and it was part of a mass transfer.
