18 killed in Varanasi flyover collapse, over 50 trapped
According to reports, two pillars and a girder of the Chaukaghat-Lehertara flyover in Varanasi's cantonment area collapsed, burying several people, a lot of them laborers and passersby, under the debris.
The 2261-metre under construction flyover that collapsed yesterday is being built at a cost of Rs 129 crore.
Many of those trapped are believed to be labourers who were working on the flyover.
Local television channel ANI reported that more than 12 people were killed and many others are trapped under the collapsed flyover. The incident occurred post-noon, and some vehicles, including a bus, were crushed in the collapse, he said.
Not only this, after the minister concerned Keshav Prasad Maurya removed the MD of another construction agency UP Rajkiya Nirman Nigam recently, that charge was also given to Mittal.
Following the incident, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had announced ex-gratia for the affected families and met the victims at the Kabir Chaura Hospital late Tuesday night.
Varanasi is the parliamentary constituency of the prime minister.
Mittal was, however, again given the responsibility once the BJP government came to power a year ago, he said.
The state government has constituted a three-member committee to probe the technical reasons for the incident. An eyewitness of the incident said, "I was 50 meters away from where a portion of the flyover came down". The committee has been asked to submit its findings within 48 hours, said a statement from the chief minister's office. I pray that the injured recover soon.
The collapse of an Under-Construction bridge today in Varanasi took innocent lives of at least 16 people and left many injured. "Seven teams of the NDRF, comprising 325 workers, have been deployed for the rescue mission", said a government spokesperson.
