Mumbai Bridge Collapse: Dead nurses' coworkers tend to their remains

Mumbai Bridge Collapse: Dead nurses' coworkers tend to their remains

MUMBAI: At least six people were killed and 32 injured when a footbridge collapsed near Mumbai's main train station on Thursday.

"Mumbaikars feel very much unsafe in the city, considering the frequent incidents of bridge collapses", the former MP said.

"I have ordered a high-level inquiry into this unfortunate incident which puts a question mark over the authenticity of the structural audit of bridges carried out across the city", he added.

The bridge was commonly known as "Kasab bridge" as the 26/11 Mumbai attack terrorist passed through it during the terror strike. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal had then announced a joint safety audit of all 445 bridges in Mumbai.

"There is a prima facie reason to believe that the structural audit has been conducted an irresponsible and negligent manner". The stampede broke out after just a 20-minute rain, on the foot over-bridge linking two of the busiest stations in Mumbai - Elphinstone Road and Parel suburban stations. In spite of commissioning the report of bridge and spending public money on it, true condition of bridge was not brought out.

A foot overbridge at another Mumbai railway station had collapsed in September 2017.

Congress leader Milind Deora said murder charge should be slapped on auditors who inspected the bridge and the BMC officers who appointed them. Traffic affected. Commuters are requested to use alternate routes. Mumbai South MP and Shiv Sena leader Arvind Sawant said a part of the FOB collapsed due to a "minor defect". 5 people were injured and 2 casualties were reported. After all, in the middle of the rush hour, one usually does not have the time to think much about these things.

"As per the information received, a part of foot over bridge near CSMT station in Mumbai collapsed. People took it to go to the "killa court" (chief metropolitan magistrate's court), Crawford market, the police commissioner's office, GT Hospital and other nearby places".

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had, during a visit to the site, assured that responsibility for the bridge collapse would be fixed by Friday evening.
