Four workers were injured in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday when a portion of a tunnel under construction crumbled, police said.

The workers were taken out of the rubble at Chenani, about 90 km from here, and taken to a hospital in Udhampur.

The tunnel is part of a four-lane road widening project of the Jammu-Srinagar highway. The reason for the collapse was not known.
