Five dead, over 30 hurt as overbridge collapses near Mumbais CST

The CST bridge collapse isn't terrorism inflicted from outside. What are we doing to fight these internal attacks

At least six people have died and 31 others wounded when a pedestrian bridge collapsed near Mumbai's main train station, the latest accident to highlight creaking infrastructure in India's financial capital. Police officials as well as rescue workers rushed to the spot within minutes, and the injured are being treated at the GT Hospital nearby and St. George Hospital. A structural audit of the bridge had earlier been done and it was found to be fit.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh each to the family of the deceased and said a high-level committee will probe the circumstances under which the 40-year-old over-bridge collapsed.

Rescue work in progress after a foot overbridge near CSMT station collapsed in south Mumbai Thursday March 14 2019.

The Maharashtra chief minister regretted the incident calling it unfortunate. "The bridge was under the ambit of BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation)".

Rescuers ended their search operation at the collapsed bridge about two hours after it fell, Satpal said, adding that authorities were sure there was no one trapped because the rubble had been cleared away. "Senior officers are on spot", tweeted Mumbai police.

In the first budget proposed after the Elphinstone Road station stampede, highest allocation was made for foot overbridges in the city. "Mumbaikars feel very unsafe in the city, considering the frequent incidents of bridge collapses", the former MP said.

Since it was peak traffic time, there were several people on the bridge as well as under it. "Even after that if such incident happened, it raises question on the audit". Commuters have been asked to use alternate routes.

Could this be the last step for a Mumbaikar

The bridge, which connected the area near the Times of India building with the iconic Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus railway station, was commonly called "Kasab bridge" as the 26/11 Mumbai attack terrorist passed through it during the strike.

Four fire brigade vehicles and two ambulances have reached the spot for rescue operations. An NDRF team has been moved from Andheri center, news agency ANI quoted NDRF as saying. "Strictest action will be taken", Fadnavis told media. The state government will provide for the treatment of injured people. It is a public FOB, and not a railway FOB.

The FOB was constructed and was being managed by the BMC.

The CSMT bridge, near the landmark Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, was built in 1984.

Following the order, the railways, the BMC and the IIT-Bombay had conducted a safety audit. "During the audit, "minor repairing" was consulted for this bridge".

Out of these, 47 bridges are taken on priority.
