Foot overbridge collapses near Mumbai's CSMT station, 5 killed

Foot overbridge collapses near Mumbai's CSMT station, 5 killed

In the initial blame game that ensued in the aftermath of the collapse, Shiv Sena MP Anil Desai said the bridge comes under the Indian Railways and the railways should have ensured the maintenance of the bridge (the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance rules the BMC).

Visuals showed a large gap in the bridge, which connects CSMT platform's 1 north end with BT Lane near the Times of India building in South Mumbai.

At least three of the dead were women, Mumbai police spokesman Manjunath Singe said. "However, we're extending all our support to the victims".

According to news agency PTI, the bridge was commonly known as "Kasab bridge" after the 26/11 Mumbai attack terrorist passed through it during the terror attacks. He has also ordered a high level probe into the Thursday's incident.

According to ANI, senior officials have rushed to the accident spot and injured persons are being shifted to the St George hospital and GT hospital. The people in the area were affected and commuters were asked to use alternate routes.

A day after a bridge collapsed in Mumbai killing six people, the BMC, Mumbai's civic body, suspended two engineers and ordered a full-fledged departmental enquiry against them. 42 people went missing after a bridge collapse after a British-era bridge was washed away near Mahad on the Mumbai-Goa national highway on 4 August 2016. "Action will be initiated against the responsible officials".

Tawde meanwhile said an enquiry into the collapse would be conducted by the Railways and the BMC.

Charges will be framed against the officers accordingly, the official added. "This is failure of the government and the system", he added.
