 One person was killed and at least 9 were injured after a section of under-construction flyover for the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) flyover collapsed in East Delhi’s Shakarpur area early on Sunday.

 

“One died and 9 are injured in the accident. Two have been admitted in LNJP and remaining seven in an MCD hospital in Karkardooma. Both the roads have been blocked after the accident. One way will be opened within two hours from now. And the second will take time to be cleared,” CPRO, DMRC, Anuj Dayal said.

 

Metro workers were lifting some metal structures and concrete slabs with the help of a crane when a 150-metre-long stretch of the Noida-Indraprastha bridge of the Metro Rail collapsed on a blueline bus that was plying on route number 39, police sources said.

 

The front part of the bus received the maximum damage and its driver Surinder, 28, died on the spot. The number of passengers could not be immediately confirmed.

 

“The bus driver died on the spot,” Anuj Dayal said.
