In another of the mishap, a portion of an under-construction flyover on a highway in Uttar Pradesh’s Basti district collapsed early morning today.
It is said that so far injury to a labourer working at the site has been confirmed.
The labourer has been rushed to the local hospital.
Sources citing the eyewitnesseses said the iron beams supporting the flyover appeared to have collapsed into the ground.
There has also been rain in the area over past many days.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has told the local authorities to clear the debris and ensure traffic is not affected on National Highway 28.
It is claimed that sixty per cent of the construction work was complete.
Last week, a portion of a service road on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway caved in after heavy rain, swallowing a car with four people. There were no casualties.>
