In a shameful incident, families of the Varanasi flyover collapse victims were charged Rs 200 to get bodies from a mortuary.

In 2017, soon after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took power in Uttar Pradesh, work on the project was expedited and the Bridge Corp was given a deadline of March 2019 to complete the work.

In the latest development in the awful bridge collapse incident, which claimed 15 lives in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi on Tuesday, the Forensic Team on Wednesday visited the spot and conducted the investigation regarding the same. We are using cranes to lift the debris and rescue the trapped people. Four officials have been appointed to replace them.

The UP Government has also announced ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh for the kin of the deceased and Rs 2 lakh for those who are seriously injured. A major rescue operation involving the National Disaster Response Force was initiated after the incident.

The flyover collapsed primarily because two beams holding up the concrete slabs buckled, say sources.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has condoled the loss of lives in the incident. The tragedy is similar to the flyover collapse in Kolkata two years back, when over 25 people were killed. Deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and minister of state Neelkanth Tiwari rushed to Varanasi to oversee the rescue and relief measures. He said that the Centre will provide all possible help to the state government. The committee has been asked to submit its findings within 48 hours of the incident, said a statement from the chief minister's office.

The state government probe will be headed by Agriculture Production Commissioner Raj Pratap Singh and will include Irrigation Department head Bhupendra Singh and Jal Nigam MD Rajesh Mittal, Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said.
