Six people were killed and at least 33 were injured when a foot overbridge near the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) railway station in Mumbai collapsed on Thursday evening.
One team from Regional Response Center (RRC), Mumbai, was rushed to the spot immediately, news agency ANI reported, quoting the National Disaster Response Force.
“Foot over bridge connecting CST platform 1 north end with B T Lane near Times of India building has collapsed,” the Mumbai Police tweeted minutes after the collapse.
The injured people were taken to the St George’s Hospital and GT Hospital. Two women killed in the incident worked at the GT hospital.
The latest incident, which comes months after bridge collapse in Andheri, has yet again raised concern among the locals prompting them to question the authorities.
Reactions poured in on Twitter, as users shared pictures of the incident.
Some of them questioned the civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, and Central Railways over poor infrastructure.
