A public helpline was on Sunday set up to provide necessary information related to the collapse of an under-construction bridge of the Delhi Metro in the national capital.

The helpline - 011-23414461 - has been operationalised, Delhi Metro spokesperson Anuj Dayal told reporters.

“The helpline will give the people all information about the accident,” he said.

Five persons, including a 28-year-old engineer, were killed and 15 others injured when an under-construction over-bridge of the Delhi Metro collapsed in New Delhi on Sunday, in the second such incident in eight months.

The accident took place as one of the pillars of the bridge gave in when a launcher was being erected close to Lady Sriram College in Dhamrudpur in Lajpat Nagar at around 5 am.
