Mumbai foot overbridge collapse: 6 dead, 33 injured; Opposition demands Piyush Goyal’s resignation, murder charges against guilty officers

MUMBAI: A blame game has begun with the Opposition demanding the resignation of Union Rail Minister Piyush Goyal and pressing murder charges against guilty officials after a section of a foot overbridge (FoB) collapsed outside the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) railway station in Mumbai on Thursday leaving at least six people dead and 33 injured.

The deadly incident took place around 7:30 PM when there was a lot of rush on the overbridge. The incident happened nearly 8 months after a portion of the foot overbridge collapsed on the railway tracks near Andheri station.

The bridge, which connected the area near the Times of India building with the iconic Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus railway station, was commonly called ‘Kasab bridge’ as the 26/11 Mumbai attack terrorist passed through it during the strike.
