In yet another case of brazen civic apathy, at least six people died and several more were injured when a foot overbridge collapsed near Mumbai’s busy CST local train station on Thursday night.
Shockingly, the bridge had been audited and declared safe just six months ago.
The city police has lodged an FIR against BMC officials and railway authorities, while Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has ordered the Municipal Commissioner to probe the reasons behind the mishap. Various authorities and officials, however, have already begun pinning the blame on each other.
We want you, the readers, to use our comments section to pay tribute to the deceased and send a strong message to India’s civic bodies, who think they are unaccountable to the public.
