Six people were killed and 33 injured after a portion of a foot overbridge near the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus railway station collapsed on Thursday evening. The bridge connected the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus railway station with the Azad Maidan Police Station.

Two of the deceased were employees of GT Hospital, where 10 casualties are receiving treatment, while others have been shifted to St George Hospital.

Fadnavis said the he has instructed the Mumbai police not to spare anyone responsible for the collapse of the foot overbridge. According to reports, the incident occured at around 7.30 pm today as a large portion of the bridge fell down, leaving around 34 people injured and 5 people dead.

"Pained to hear about the foot over bridge incident near TOI building in Mumbai". Earlier on July 3, 2018 a pedestrian pathway of Gokhale bridge had collapsed on the railway tracks at Andheri railway station. Mumbai Police has also tweeted in this regard and has advised commuters to use alternate routes. Some motorists who were passing beneath the bridge when it came down, were among those injured. BJP MLA Raj Purohit has demanded stern action against the audit team which failed to take precautionary action. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has been rushed to the spot to expedite the rescue operation. However, the Railway doctors and officials have been cooperating with BMC in relief and rescue operations.

The stampede broke out after just a 20-minute rain, on the foot over-bridge linking two of the busiest stations in Mumbai - Elphinstone Road and Parel suburban stations. Of the 314 bridges, the audit had recommended the demolition and reconstruction of 14 bridges, including five FOBs, major repairs to 47 others and minor repairs in the case of another 176. The report of the Andheri bridge collapse had revealed failure on part of both the WR and BMC. "Railway traffic is not affected", Central Railway PRO AK Jain said, in a statement.

"The bridge was of BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation)".

The issue of dilapidated bridges in the city came to fore after the Gokhale Bridge at Andheri collapsed previous year.
