Mumbai bridge collapse 6 dead and 33 injured near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus
At least six men and women were died and 32 injured in Mumbai bridge collapse, after a part of a crowded pedestrian bridge connected to Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) collapsed in evening yesterday , triggering a political blame-game and spotlighting the crumbling state of public infrastructure in India’s monetary capital.
Police stated chunks of concrete from the bridge came crashing down on the arterial Dadabhai Naoroji road in south Mumbai around 7.33 pm.
Police said the six deceased integrated two nurses from Gokuldas Tejpal medical institution heading to work for the night time shift. They had been identified as Apoorva Prabhu (35) and Ranjana Tambe (40). The others were recognized as Zahid Shiraj Khan (32), Bhakti Shinde (40), Tapendra Singh (35) and Mohan Kayangude (58). ‘The collapse of a foot over-bridge in Mumbai is deeply saddening. My ideas are with the households who lost their loved ones in this accident’, said Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
