Panic prevailed in Kolkata after an under-construction flyover collapsed in one of city’s busiest roads on Thursday afternoon, trapping several others under the debris.
The flyover was set to be one of the longest in the city, connecting Girish Park in north Kolkata to Howrah.
Rescue workers were seen trying to extract those trapped by cutting through stone slabs using heavy drilling machines. Personnel from disaster management authority rushed to the spot.
