The incident was reported on Sunday night when a loose screw in the giant wheel came off and the wheel crashed.
According to the reports, people at the fair said that they had noticed the loose bolt and had even alerted the official present at the ground. The official, however, didn’t act as he was drunk.
After the incident, the locals caught the official and beat him up.
