A flyover which is under construction in the eastern city of Kolkata was collapsed on thursday, killing at least 14 people and injuring others. Many people are feared trapped under the concrete and steel bridge, which fell on a busy road. Main issues for the incident was lack of inspections and the use of substandard materials have plagued construction projects in the country. The incident took place in an area near Girish Park, one of Kolkata's most densely populated neighborhoods, with narrow lanes, and shops and houses built close together. The 2km-long (1.2 mile) flyover has been under construction since 2009 and missed several deadlines for completion, Reuters news agency says.
As the rescue operation continues angry relatives arrive looking for their loved ones. At the same time, more bodies are being taken away. The army and national disaster agency in India have also joined the rescue operation.
