The flyover of 2,261 meters in length is being constructed at a cost of INR 129 crores.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited Varanasi yesterday, a few hours after accident and met the injured at the BHU Trauma Centre and the Divisional Hospital at Kabirchaura.

BSF Director General K.K. Sharma, who arrived on Tuesday, after a trooper was killed in firing by the Pakistani rangers in Samba district, confirmed that the successful infiltration bid took place on Monday.

Five injured people were pulled from the wreckage, police said. Uttar Pradesh government had come under fire for using poor quality of raw materials in the construction of the bridge and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi hasn't been bereft of the criticism since he represents the high-profile Lok Sabha constituency - Varanasi.

Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and another minister Neelkanth Tiwari rushed to the site.

In another tweet, the prime minister said he had spoken to Adityanath. The potion which colpased had been laid barely three months ago, they added. She was on her way to Varanasi's Cantonment railway station along with her husband to drop their aspiring engineer-son there en route to Kota on Tuesday when a concrete slab from an under construction flyover fell on their auto.

Rescuers and crane operators worked through the night in the city of Varanasi to try to reach all the victims, but more people were still feared trapped beneath the wreckage, which had crushed four cars, motorcycles and a bus.

After public and media targeted UP State Bridge Corporation, its MD Rajan Mittal blamed Varanasi District Administration for the incident for not closing the roads in spite of several reminders. I pray that the injured recover soon.
